Been browsing BA.com and it seems BA has made changes to its LHR SH S18 timetable:
  • KEF: going from 4 to 7 flights a week
  • JMK: going from 4 to 7 flights a week
  • CFU: goig from 7 to 10 flights a week
Didn't look further, just wondering are there anymore changes?

I've had a few 5/10 min changes. Hoping for some more significant to give me some flexibility on some non flexible flights

Yes Double Daily was introducced this winter. Last summer it was only 4 weekly. So it depends on how you look at it.

INV up to 10 flights per week.No doubt driven by the lack of APD.

Disappointing to see frequency reductions to GLA and EDI, considering how busy these stations are. But of course, BA can use their assets to more profitable destinations.

Looks like Las Vegas is a money maker for BA.

Thanks. Surprising that IST going to 2 daily only!

Do you think there will changes to LGW SH. The schedule seems to be messy with routes having 2 flights in one day and none on other days.

For GLA its a total reduction of only one random flight per week- no big deal. Lots of these flights outwith peak dont run full.

Excellent. I'm planning on being there a fair bit, so that's great news. Do we know when this is effective?

As far as I can see, right from the beginning of Northern Summer 2018, which starts on the conventional date: last Sunday in March.
