LONDON (AP) — Talks between British Airways and the union representing its cabin crew have collapsed.

Unite union joint leader Tony Woodley said Friday that he was “extremely disappointed” that there was no further meetings scheduled with the airline’s management before the strike is set to begin on Saturday.

Woodley charged that management did not “want to negotiate. This company wants to go to war.”

BA chief executive Willie Walsh said it was “deeply regrettable” that an offer they had offered the airline had not been accepted “and it will be formally withdrawn once industrial action commences.”
