In the event of another cancellation, there are few OW flights into EWR. Can BA require us to re-route into JFK? If so, would they provide compensation to get back to EWR or would we be on our own (for those who don't fly there, those 2 airports are 35-40 miles apart, depending upon the route, but can take 2 hours to get to depending on the time of day).

If that's what we are offered are we free to refuse? If we do refuse are we entitled to compensation?

Is there any likelihood that BA would offer a United flight even though it's not OW? Thanks!
I was due to fly on BA188 on Thursday 30th August between EWR-LHR. I made initial contact via twitter about claiming under EC261. The response was I would not be entitled to compensation because the 787 was having engine checks. Where do I stand?

Thanks in advance
