I imagine that flying out of the states will be an ordeal as security is bound to be high. People won't want the hassle or will think that there is an increased risk that day, so it's not really surprising that there is cancellations.

Airlines are cancelling flights on September 11 because of low bookings.

British Airways has cancelled 26 flights to and from the US, and one return flight to Barbados. Most of the cancellations effect cities with multiple services, ie out of 3 services to Boston, 2 will be cancelled.

A spokesperson said: "Bookings are low on several US routes. Understandably, some people are choosing not to fly on the anniversary of the tragic attacks in the United States."

Despite those cancellations, BA will be operating 368 flights out of Heathrow and Gatwick on September 11, flying thousands of people across the world.

Customers booked on the cancelled flights will be accommodated on other flights to the same destination that day.

American Airlines and United Airlines in the US are also making unspecified cancellations to their flights on September 11 due to weak bookings. Delta is also trimming flights between September 9 and 13.

Air France said it has also decided to cancel two flights on September 11, one Paris-New York return flight and one Paris-Washington return flight, due to lack of reservations for that date. SAS also said it has cancelled two out of its three flights to New York on September 11.

Good to see the BBC using up to date pics of B747s!

How old is the photo? 1981?

I guess that pic is from post 1997. Since the 744 in the background has the NewOld scheme.

Hey, I like that picture! There's nothing sexier than a British 747 in the old livery!

I like the Virgin one too.

It is understandable that airlines are cancelling flights due to the loads around September 11. After all, if you cannot make money, why run those flights? The flip side of the coin is that the fear factor shown by many people has forced a multitude of cancellations by several carriers. Terrorists hoped that people would be afraid to fly after what they did. After all, the sole purpose of terrorism is to create terror. It looks like they have succeeded in many ways and that is a damn shame.

BA is cancelling flights 212/3 and 239 to BOS, which means the BA238 on 12 September is also cancelled. I also read that Air France has cancelled flights to New York and Washington on 11 September because of low bookings.
