BA has just cancelled BA 227 to ATL and BA295 to ORD. Are there any other flights being cancelled to/from LHR? I presume this is due to the great freeze?

Yep knock on from the last few days. Will take a few days to get back to normal although with the continuing cold weather and also more snow forecast it will take a lot longer for the UK airlines to run an un interupted schedule.

EDI hasen't seen a BA LHR service for 2 days now and tomorrow more LHR-EDI are cancelled whereas BD are operating theirs. It is becoming systematic that all domestic flights get the chop when something goes wrong at LHR. Pretty annoying.


Next flights : BRU-ZRH-CAI (LX)/ BRU-FCO-TLV (AZ)

The reason domestics get the chop first is because they are easier to reroute than say MXP, DME, LED etc. The last few days has seen thousands of crews rosters changed because they have been diverted or gone out of hours due to snow.

BA pax travelling from LHR/EDI, have either been refunded, rebooked or transfered to LCY and LGW services. They have also been offered train tickets to EDI.

Heavy snow forcast for tomorrow night and Sunday so more disruption likely

Not only the end of the days on.....I think I need one each day I get in. Day 4 for me tomorrow.

The extra security checks on US flights are certainly not helping us to recover. These checks are causing numerous problems and long delays, which means that we don't have gates available for arrivals and later departures. We cancelled flights tonight simply because there were no gates for the aircraft......some of which were on the ground for over an hour just waiting.

I am sending a friend PHL-LHR-BRU and BRU portion is cxld. I checked the wx in LHR and it looks like rain snow mix, nothing much. I am baffled as to why there are so many cxld flights and who the hell is running the OCC over there?

I tried to call, but it was busy all day. I tried to do online changes and they would not allow. Just a royal pain in the rear dealing with a company the was used to be my favourite when they had Derwent Water in the proper colours of the old days.

BA 157 to KWI was canceled on 7th and 8th.

I was booked on the 7th and they re-booked me on the 8th but I refused, so I request to transfer on LH on the 8th.

Now I'm back home, thank god I didn't listen to them otherwise I would have been stuck at LHR till god knows when.

When will they start booking the stranded pax on other airlines even though it's "force majeure"? Or are they already doing so?
I mean, how are they getting rid of the backlog?
Or are the other frequencies to the same destination empty enough to absorb the people stranded from the cancelled ones?

And are they paying hotels to the pax (again: even though it's higher force) that have been stranded several days?
Or are those sleeping at Heathrow?

My best friend was due to fly Gatwick-Dubrovnik on Thursday and they cancelled the flight. I rang the number they offered and very very very rude man on the phone said the only option was to fly on Sunday! But thats 4days after my friend needed to be at work. I asked about re-routing (which i know is possible if you shout load enough) the rude man on the phone told me it was not possible unless i went to Gatwick and tried there. In the end i asked for a refund and was forced to buy a one-way ticket with Croatia Airlines via Zagreb for 200pounds, 130pounds more than the BA flight. Do you think i have grounds to ask for compensation?

See reply 15.

I personally went to the customer service desk at LHR T5 in order to re-route my flight.

You can't do any re-routing on the phone as they are not authorize to do so. This is was they told me on the phone.

Staff and planes are all over the place, stands are iced over and planes are not able to park up. Staff are also struggling to get into work. I live NEXT DOOR and im struggling to stay up right just walking down my road. Most staff don't live this close and live in surrounding counties where it is a lot worse.

Because of the joys of the last 2 days also crew are out of hours and rosters I have heard have been radically changed. The longhaul program is affected by this as well. Just remember that it is not just London, all major UK airports have been affected as well as European ones. Q's for deicers etc mean delays, and if you talk about a small delay in the morning, it could turn into a LONGER delay by the end of the day

Quoting Adriaticflight (Reply 17):

Speak to your traveller insurer. BA can only refund your ticket as it is a weather problem and out of BA control. (Though I wish BA could control the weather as I want rid of it)

That is true. ContactBA (res) can only book onto BA flights due to the system they use. Only airport Ticket Desks can re route onto other carriers.

So what's preventing you from starting your own thread on the topic? Keyboard broken? Apathy? Or you just wanted to have a moan?

Where were you able to get this info from? I only ask because my flight BA2159 LGW-POS was cancelled on Wednesday and I was rebooked onto tomorrow's flight. Would be nice to know beforehand if the flight has been cancelled instead of waisting petrol driving from NE London to Gatwick and finding out that the flight has been cancelled.
