Strike?

I have the following upcoming flights:
12/21 ATL-LHR
12/24 LHR-DEL
1/1/19 DEL-LHR
1/2/19 LHR-ATL

I called Virgin and they said that my flights are not affected by the PPU strike. I've never flown Virgin before--should I believe them?

PPU does not represent any LHR-based pilots -- you are safe.

I thought VS flight crews were either LHR/LGW based or MAN based. I'm pretty sure there are PPU members flying out of LHR.

A friend of mine is a VS pilot and he flies both ex LGW and LHR on the planned rota but only from LGW when on standby.

Just in case anyone is still concerned about this, the courts have ruled that strikes can't take place, so they are cancelled - for now.
