Industrial action by easyJet pilots has been suspended while new proposals on tackling fatigue are being considered, the British Airline Pilots Association (Balpa) said.
Some 2,000 pilots at the budget airline were balloted over concerns that rising levels of fatigue risked "serious health and safety concerns".
However, in last minute talks proposals to mitigate pilot fatigue have been put on the table.
A statement said: "As a result, while this proposal is being consulted on by Balpa members, we are suspending serving strike notice on the company."
Brian Strutton, Balpa's general secretary, said it did not mean the dispute was over but said it was right to suspend the action as they consult their members.
