Pilots at a leading airline which flies out of Birmingham International have voted to go on strike in a pay row next month.
The British Airline Pilots Association said its members at bmibaby, the low frills division of BMI, backed a campaign of industrial action by three to one.
The union said it would not call a strike over the busy Bank Holiday weekend.
Balpa is in dispute with the airline after complaining about the imposition of a 2.4 per cent rise.
Pilots at the main BMI airline and its regional arm are also being balloted over pay and planned increases in pension contributions, with results due next week.
Balpa general secretary Jim McAuslan said: "Our members in bmibaby have spoken out. The imposition of a 2.4 per cent pay rise without any satisfactory negotiations was a big factor, but it was only one.
"There is despair the management has shown its employees a total lack of respect over a range of issues."
Mr McAuslan said the vote had come at a time of "great difficulty" for the aviation industry.
Bmibaby employs 200 pilots, with an estimated Balpa membership of 140, and flies from four other airports apart from Birmingham - Cardiff, East Midlands, Durham Tees Valley and Glasgow.
BMI operates 1,700 flights a week across the UK and Europe as well as to the United States, India and Saudi Arabia.
