See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Secretary General of the Association of Scientific, Technical and Managerial Staffs said today his union would support members at airfields who denied service to planes of the Libyan State Airlines. The British Airline Pilots Association said it would conduct a referendum of its 5000 members to ascertain what protest action they are willing to take against hijacking. The pilots will be asked if they would support a world-wide strike or bans against countries harboring hijackers.
