What happens if the outbound flight is OK but my homeward flight is cancelled?

Would I know before I left home and if I did would it then be up to me to get myself home at my own expense if I decided to go ahead with the first flight?

We fly Aug 31st - first time with BA after years of flying VA! Hoping it's all settled by then as they'll have had nearly 4 weeks to sort it out.

edit - we fly Sept 1st, we only go to the airport Aug 31st

We fly on 10th and I am so stressed about it all. We have been booked for a year . Its horrible not knowing if we are going to go or not. If they announce they are striking on Monday will all flights on the effected days be cancelled or will they run a reduced service ? If they are going to cancel our flights how quickly will we find out ? I would prefer a refund and to try and book flights with an alternative airline at this point however I fear that they may not notify us of cancellation untill it is too late to rebook x

I've just been looking online and found this info. money/guides/what-...ike-action.htm
We go on a cruise the day after - so can't even change the days a bit.

That is exactly what we are thinking. If you turn up On the day and the Newcastle to Heathrow flight is cancelled then you miss your holiday. 11% over three years is a good pay rise and they should be grateful they are not in public sector

Neither , flights won't be cancelled til the last moment as inevitably not all union members will strike and cancelled flights will be protected by moving passengers to other airlines where possible so you are not going to get stranded butlikely delayed or flying home indirect at worse.

Great thats very useful. What Im worried about is how quickly ba will notify me that my flight is affected as Im guessing that even if strike action is agreed on Monday and dates proposed BA will try and negotiate etc to stop the strike and therefore delays them informing us if our flights are affected. We are flying Newcaste - Heathrow - Miami. I feel very much at the minute like there is nothing I can do but wait and see. I feel as though I cant look forward to our holiday at all as Im not even sure if we will get there x
