There is an increasingly strong argument that if BA cannot rebook someone within 24 hours then travellers are able to rebook themselves and charge BA for the outcome. I base that on the CAA's statements over the Ryanair flight crew shortage problem earlier this year.
Thanks for the input, most appreciated. My rebooked BA1333 has now been cancelled and there are no seats at all on 11DEC, so might just book a train and try and claim it anyway. Got myself a nice suite at crowne plaza and a dinner, so can't complain.
