LHR need to officially announce to airlines that they are cancelling flights in order for LH to action Irregular Operations rebookings.

I know from my own experience that as FTers we can get ahead of ourselves and too clever for our own good in trying to mitigate risk in these situations. Iíve been there myself, only a month ago with the LHR strikes that never happened.

What I really did learn from that was LHR will hold out until the actual day to issue irreg instructions to airlines. LH will not action rebookings until itís official. Even though itís SO frustrating for us when weíre watching the news, I donít think theyíre being that unreasonable in rebooking people when the strike or cancellations may not go ahead.

In an ideal world theyíd offer a confirmed backup, but hey.. the world isnít perfect.

My money is on the authorities not letting drones anywhere near LHR on Sept. 13 and that itís all talk..! I think youíll be fine
