We go on a cruise the day after - so can't even change the days a bit.
We too are cruising and although we fly a month later I'm aware that with negotiations delaying the strike start date we could still be affected. We do have 2 days in Miami to play with before the cruise so my attitude is we may lose our Miami plans and end up flying indirect at worst but should still make it.
Thankfully we are flying home with AA so "only" have the UNISON strike threat to worry about at Heathrow (and if we get stuck in Florida it's not such a disaster anyway )

Every year something turns up to 'worry' about in the holiday run up and BA is this years! We only have 1 night pre cruise then onto the BC post cruise - I don't mind getting stuck there but I would like to actually arrive on time

Useful info here:

independent/travel...-a9015001.html

Encouraged by this bit:

Routes such as Heathrow-Miami could be particularly prioritised because of the large number of passengers using the link in connection with cruises.

I hope so as I am flying to Miami!

10 mins before ballot closes! We should know early afternoon although BA are taking BALPA to court tomorrow morning (assuming the vote is to strike) to get the vote overturned due to a legal technicality

We are also flying Heathrow to Miami albeit starting at Newcastle. However , if given enough notice we could easily make alternative arrangements to get to Heathrow. This is so stressful ! X

On 10th, we are flying Manchester (BA ticket on BA flight) to Heathrow to Miami, but we have an AA ticket on a BA operated flight for this leg. I agree the not knowing is so stressful and if we had enough notice we could get from Manchester to Heathrow by other means if necessary as we arrive in Manchester from Paris the day before.

Also, if the first "leg" (second in reality for us), from Manchester to Heathrow was cancelled, would they let us "join" direct at Heathrow if that flight was going ahead I wonder...I don't even know who we would need to contact, BA, AA or our insurance!
