Wait until it gets cancelled which it will be. Although keep an eye on it as some reports of airlines deliberately not cancelling in the systems even though flight does not go to try avoid EU 261 !!
Some airlines are communicating cancelled flights with only the options of a voucher or a date change. There is no mention of a refund.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF A FLIGHT IS CANCELLED UNDER EU 261 YOU ARE ENTITLED TO A REFUND



Article 8

Right to reimbursement or re-routing

1. Where reference is made to this Article, passengers shall be offered the choice between:

(a) - reimbursement within seven days, by the means provided for in Article 7(3), of the full cost of the ticket at the price at which it was bought, for the part or parts of the journey not made, and for the part or parts already made if the flight is no longer serving any purpose in relation to the passenger's original travel plan, together with, when relevant,

- a return flight to the first point of departure, at the earliest opportunity;

(b) re-routing, under comparable transport conditions, to their final destination at the earliest opportunity; or

(c) re-routing, under comparable transport conditions, to their final destination at a later date at the passenger's convenience, subject to availability of seats.

2. Paragraph 1(a) shall also apply to passengers whose flights form part of a package, except for the right to reimbursement where such right arises under Directive 90/314/EEC.
