Using language normally reserved for airlines that have gone bust. BA Marketing Department must be hating on whoever made the decision to cancel these flights now.

Excellent answer, unfortunately for me only for flights till end of July which is a mere few days too early. Hopefully, BA will lose further market shares to both TLV and DXB over their stretching of the notion of "manifest" error.

That said, more importantly, I still hope some people who like that sort of thing take the airline to court and that courts will get a chance to decide whether BA's understanding of a "manifest error" is correct or not. Should this be the case and be dealt with by a Court which can set precedent, this could suddenly become a far more costly decision for BA (notwithstanding the possible public humiliation should they be found to have labeled this unconvincingly)
