BA574 LHR-LIN tomorrow (Mon 25th) cancelled

Bit of a heads-up for anyone on this tomorrow - it's been cancelled, presumably due to airport worker strikes in Italy.

I didn't get any notification from BA (previously I've received a text or push notification for cancelled flights), but noticed it in the app when I opened it to check the flight status. I'm now booked on BA568 a couple of hours later, but I had to manually accept the rebooking online (web browser only - couldn't do it in the app).

Bit of a pain in that I've got a non-changeable car picking me up and taking me, so I'll have an extra couple of hours to kill.

Was that an email you received from BA? I've still not received any "official" notification from BA that the flight's cancelled

Yes, one email from BA about the cancelled flight, 30 mins later a second email from BA informing me that on BA584 as below..

Thank you for choosing to fly with British Airways. Your flight tomorrow is busy and we'd like to invite you to check-in your hand baggage free of charge.

All good fun!

For some reason doesn’t include the cancellation above.

However passengers today for Rome, Milan Linate, Venice, Genoa and Naples can rebook on any flight until Thursday.
