U25252 FCO 07:00 LGW 08:35. Just saying...
Indeed, as a first flight from FCO to London this sounds like an utterly ridiculous timing! What on earth have they been smoking if they think that it makes business sense??

AZ202

I was due to be flying back from a trip on AZ 673 (GIG-FCO) and then connecting to AZ 202 (FCO-LHR) in the middle of May. I've just checked my booking on the Italian version of the website and it is showing that I am booked on both AZ 202 and also AZ 212 (FCO-LCY)!

I've not received any communication from AZ about cancellation - should I expect any? Would anyone advise calling them?

My car will be parked at LHR, so this change is fairly inconvenient. I understand that under 261/2004 AZ should pay for onward travel from LCY to LHR - has anyone got any experience of this actually happening?

Well, you are one travelcard away, so I don't see why they shouldn't reimburse you that. It will be inconvenient anyway.

no worries: they will change the schedule at least 12-15 times.
