"We are pleased to have agreed a pay proposal in principle with BALPA, which will now be put to members with a recommendation from the union," British Airways said in a statement.

The carrier has also agreed to additional pay rises for pilots who were made redundant during the COVID-19 pandemic but have now returned, according to the report.
