Union warning over pilot hours

UNION leaders have launched a campaign against plans to increase the working hours of pilots, warning that passenger safety was being put at risk. The British Airline Pilots' Association said moves by the European Aviation Safety Agency would lead to an increase from 1 hours 15 minutes to 13 hours 55 minutes over a two-day stint for pilots reporting for duty under UK rules.
