LONDON — British Airways said Monday it has canceled almost all its flights for 48 hours, affecting as many as 195,000 travelers, due to a strike by pilots over pay.

British Airways said it stands ready to return to talks with the pilots' union, BALPA, and that it has offered affected customers full refunds or the option to rebook. The airline had prepared for weeks for the strike, giving travelers advanced notice.

The union accuses British Airways is making big profits at the expense of workers who made sacrifices during hard times. A further strike is penciled in for Sept. 27.

British Airways' parent company, IAG, made a net profit of $3.2 billion last year.
