Mobile BA - cancelled flight - race to Heathrow

Im not normally one to vent, but I need to on this occasion.

After a 330 day countdown, travel day has become an absolute nightmare. We were due on the 12.10 from Manchester to Miami and as we were in the line checking in we were informed the flight was cancelled! No email or text or even a BA manager telling people. They let us all walk up to the counter only to tell us there is no flight.

So... how do we make the 4.10 to Miami whilst standing at Manchester airport at 10.30. BA simply told us to make our own way if we wanted to make the flight. No arranged services, no advice on refunds and claiming expenses. Nothing!

4 train changes to make it to LHR T3. On train 2 of 4 (first train delayed so meant we missed our planned second train to Euston). 4 suitcases, 3 rucksacks and 2 kids under 6.

I doubt we will make our flight to Miami. Meaning we will probably miss our whole Miami section of the holiday. If nothing else gets delayed we should make the Miami flight. But so many dependencies!

Thanks. Looking at my countdown ticker is making me sad! 7 mins would have been on our flight to London and then smoothly to miami. Instead Im on a train heading to London with all this luggage and two tired kids, with odds lower than 50/50 that we make the flight.

From Euston are you hopping in a cab or walking (ten minutes) to Kings X and then getting the Direct train to Gatwick ? Both make more sense than the tube .
