    British Airways plc v Williams and others [2009] IRLR 491 CA (0 other reports)

holiday pay | basic pay | flying allowances

The Court of Appeal has held that British Airways was not in breach of statutory holiday pay requirements when it calculated pilots' paid annual leave by reference to their basic salary rather than what they would expect to earn when flying allowances were added.

The pilots received basic pay, as well as allowances for the amount of "flying time" that they had and the amount of time that they spent away from their base airport.
