From what I remember Ryanair (surprise,surprise) tried not to pay this comp when they had strikes, it went to court where they won. So you may not be entitled to the additional compensation. I think it is still a very grey area though with strikes because it is all to do with if the airline had control over it.

But you are entitled to a full refund.

Actually Ryanair had to pay out when its pilots went on strike as it was in the airlines control to stop the strike, (ie they could have given in to the pilots demands so the strikes would have been called off. They didn't automatically do it so you had to take further action against them.

It will be the same for BA unless they cancel your flight more than 14 days in advance.

The unions could if they wanted to announce strikes dates at any time, they don't have to wait for the current talks to conclude/break down.

Ahh I am corrected, I thought that was the case but then googled it to find they won the case.

I'm stuffed if they announce a strike now
Looks as if we may have dodged the bullet strike wise!

We are in the "red zone" at the moment . Only flying BA on the outward (so just UNITE at Heathrow to worry about on the return )but it's into FLL not Orlando so plenty of options with AA either direct or indirect into MIA if the worst happens. I'm very aware our flight is very under booked as it's the last flight BA are doing LGW FLL so is prime cancellation fodder as there will be fewer passengers to re book.
What will be will be, we will get there somehow .
