''There is a meeting going on and we hope to get the new actuarial valuation,'' one source told Reuters. A second source said an announcement was scheduled later today.
A spokeswoman for the Transport&General Workers Union confirmed the airline was meeting unions today but did not expect to finalise a deal to reduce the deficit this week.
The new actuarial valuation is estimated to be between 1.5 billion pounds (2.81 billion dollar) and 1.8 billion pounds, sources familiar with the situation have told Reuters.
