I decided to post this separately just incase any kind a.neter can advise me.

Any BA staff on here know if the 2030 to NCE tonight (BA352) is likely to go. It's very frustrating not knowing if flights will start at 1800. Can't get through to BA and the website still has the flight departing at 2030 but you can't check in.

I'm seriously considering booking EZY flights Sat am but wonder what the refund policy would be if the BA352 then operates tonight? Also can you just use the return leg from NCE on Monday if I haven't used BA outbound? Any help/advice greatly appreciated

I know that you are looking for information, there may not be any additional information for a little while. Keep watching the news, and continue to check the BA website as well as the BBC website.

The last thing I heard on the news on Friday morning was there was not going to be any BA flights before 1800....

Even after 1800, it is going to take BA a little while to figure things out, that is assuming that the strikers workers go back to work.

Airplanes, Pilots, Flight Attendants all will have to be re-assigned.

But, I would not hold out toooo much with your flight tonight......

WE ARE PRAYING that flts start after 1800, if anything with a delay. That was the last inforamtion i got from work when i left at midnight last nite. Dont start till 1345 so have know idea if that has changed at all.

I know that flt got VERY full yesterday as we rebooked pax onto the next avail. Best thing to do is keep updated on BA.COM and teletext. If it still shows as going, go to the airport early for normal check in. You know its gonna be mayhem there, id advise you take snack's/water as its gonna be a wait. If it gets canx. BA will help best they can. It will take time, but they will help

Quoting TimRees (Thread starter):
Also can you just use the return leg from NCE on Monday if I haven't used BA outbound?

No. Usually this is specifically forbidden in the conditions of your fare !

This is due to the fact that decades ago it was common for a while to purchase a ticket in say Bangkok for a flight BKK - LHR - BKK which was considerably cheaper than a ticket LHR - BKK - LHR.
This BKK-LHR-BKK -ticket then was sent to the customer in the U.K. and he flew the second segment earlier than the first segment.
But nowadays all fare-conditions state "Segments must be flown in order as shown; not complying with that will invalidate the ticket (at least all the sectors not flown yet)" (not a literarily quote).

Just to thank everyone at BA for all their help with this flight, especially Horus.


I was extremely lucky as this flight was one of the few to get away on Friday evening...eventually taking off at 2213 local.

I can only presume that luck was on my side and I truely hope all the other stranded passengers are now happily at their destinations after their ordeal.

I have my faith in BA staff fully restored. They were all superb! Thanks once again.
