Hong Kong-based Virgin Atlantic cabin crew will stage a wildcat strike starting tomorrow, December 21, in a bid to stave off job losses announced by the British airline last month.

Travellers flying Virgin Atlantic this Christmas are being warned the London flight may not take-off as a result of the industrial action which will start on December 21st until January 1st.

Action is being taken after the company sacked 50 older cabin crew based in Hong Kong in a cost-cutting drive.
