British Airways pilots have reached a new pay agreement just in time for the winter holidays.

Earlier this year, British Airways pilots temporarily grounded the whole airline when they walked off the job.

Although there was no threat of another strike on the immediate horizon, the deal adds a measure of stability for the company as external factors like Brexit make its operating environment somewhat uncertain.
