Leaders of 9,000 British Airways cabin crew were last night considering proposals from the airline aimed at averting a three-day strike beginning next Wednesday. While stewards and stewardesses were protesting over the imposition of a new pay structure, talks continued between the airline and representatives of 9,000 ground staff who are threatening industrial action in a separate dispute over the sell-off of the catering division.

Meanwhile, Richard Branson's Virgin Atlantic yesterday unveiled the airline's new logo (pictured) - the Union Flag which BA dropped from the tailplanes of its aircraft last month. The new logo, which will appear at the front of Virgin aircraft, was unveiled on a Boeing 747 at Heathrow airport.
