British Airways and its Heathrow hub have been in the news this summer from hours-long immigration and security lines to lost and delayed bags, and later due to the passenger capacity cap instituted.
Now, the airline has already given up trying to return to normal operations before the second quarter of 2023 and has decided to cancel 10,000 mostly short-haul flights during the IATA winter season (late October to late March).
You can access BA here.
The move is aimed at minimising disruption over the winter and some long-haul flights will also be affected, the airline said.
Most cancellations will be on routes which have other daily services to the same destinations, it said in a statement.
Passengers affected by the changes will be offered an alternative flight with BA or another airline or a refund, it added.
BA insisted the impact for customers was “minimal”, with the majority of flights unchanged.
“Customers booked for winter will be able to travel as planned and are being given several months’ notice of any changes,” a statement said.
The airline has already canceled more than 30,000 for the summer and now another 10,000 for the winter.
It is better to have a realistic schedule of flights the airline can reliably operate rather than having daily rolling delays and cancellations.
Let’s hope BA and Heathrow can adequately staff (read pay wages that attract applicants) in 2023.
