I wonder why BA haven't cancelled anymore? Do they have inside info?

Possibly, or just hoping something happens with Boris this week like the rest of us.

As I understand it, they have to cancel 14 days out before they have to pay out extra compensation, so the week of the 11th should be cancelled this week barring a positive announcement.

I doubt they know anything more than we do, since all updates are leaked to media. My thoughts are they were hoping the travel change last week and Boris visiting Biden this week were going to create some movement in the rules.

I don't think there's any legal difference for flight cancellations until about two weeks before, so they may have thought they'd risk pushing out the cancellations out further in case an update came through.

It will be interesting come tomorrow when people have balances due for flights / holidays that are not yet cancelled.

So far Iíve not heard of anyone being told by BA Ďyouíve not paid your balance so we are keeping your deposití

Iím leaving mine till Friday which is the 3 week before mark. Iíll try and get in touch with BA (fine as I donít work a Friday) and if not Iíll be filling in the form for the voucher.

I changed our original booking to the day before so 3 weeks before is the Friday but balance due is the Saturday so I need to do something before the Friday but they could refuse to refund me as my balance isnít due till the next day.

I get BA might be hopeful something will change with Borisís visit but Iím not sure that will be the case.
Dh has thrown his toys out the pram as is saying even if things change he doesnít want to go now. (Sure Ds and I could talk him round but Iím not sure that will actually be required)

Iím in the process of booking an alternative holiday, Iím due to go the 12th of October but ATD has already cancelled both my Disney and universal stay so Iím definitely in the frame of mind Iím not going! Iím holding out for a cancellation, but Iím worried if it doesnít get cancelled Iíll lose my money?! So Iím a bit sceptical to book an alternative holiday right now but itís hard as everything is booking up SO quick!

If they don't cancel the flight, you can request a voucher through the flexible booking policy and use that to pay for something else. That's assuming you can't get a refund on the grounds of not being able to travel, which some people have reported they've been able to do by contacting BA. Either way, you will not lose the money.

Hi not sure if this is right place to post? Has anyone requested vouchers online and booked another holiday while waiting on them then managed to get them successfully applied to the new booking? Thanks

Yep, did it all online about 10 days ago. Waiting for the voucher to be applied though we have had confirmation this should be done soon.

Yes. So long as the voucher was requested before you booked the new holiday.

Forward the voucher email to baholidays@ba.com and say you would like it applied to your new booking (give them the reference). Itís taken between 2 and 10 days for me to get a response on those.

Thanks for the reply. I only requested them yesterday. I was thinking of booking before the sale ends.
