British Airways said it was reinstating more than half of its normal flight schedule for September 27 after pilots at the airline called off a threatened strike.

The British Airline Pilots Association called off the planned job action following a two-day strike last week.

That strike “demonstrated the anger and resolve of pilots,” the union said in a statement, adding that that it’s “now time for a period of reflection before the dispute escalates further and irreparable damage is done to the brand.”

The airline had stopped accepting bookings for that date and had also begun the process of canceling some reservations.  It said it plans to merge some services and operate more than 400 flights on that day. It also offered to rebook flights for those whose reservations had been cancelled.
