There are two other threads relating to Storm Dennis and HAL IT meltdown yesterday, now resolved.

Nevertheless there are a lot of cancellations today, 32 out of LHR for 283 flights.

BA0906 FRA 08:20
BA0306 CDG 08:35

BA0039 PKX 16:15
BA0031 HKG 18:25
BA0482 BCN 19:10
BA0161 PVG 21:35
There are some delays on top, I see a HEL flight 90 minutes delayed, and a BCN running 2 hours late, but mostly it looks a typical Monday, if we leave all the cancellations to one side.


LCY flights
None, but delays are building up, so there may be some later in the day.

LGW
None, and they seem on top of things there, not many delays either.

LCY

BA0588 LIN 10:25
that's me unfortunately...had to cancel my whole trip as it was a short hop to say hallo to family and there were no avail seats on other flights to LIN today.

I was left quite disappointed when LHR parking refused to transfer my valet parking booking to my next flight. I appreciate T&Cs, but in the face of a cancellation (and considering it was a £125 booking for less than 48 hrs parking) I would have expected more flexibility honestly...

Btw, am I correct in assuming this is not eligible for EU261? Or the IT meltdown gives some hope?

From an airline perspective this is consequential losses (insurance yadayada) but I'm guessing this is HAL's own parking? In which case I think you should ask them formally to refund it since this their system collapse has contributed to the flight disruptions today.

For the record, BA's statement on the recent problems:

Heathrow Airport's systems issue

London Heathrow Airport has now resolved its technical issues that were impacting its IT systems across all terminals and affecting a number of airlines.

Due to the disruption, we expect there to be a knock-on effect to customers travelling on short-haul flights today, Monday 17 February. We have brought in extra colleagues to help our customers. But we are sorry for the disruption that the airport’s systems have had on many of your journeys.

I am due to travel today, Monday 17 February, what are my options?

The majority of disrupted flights have been to other UK and European destinations. We would ask anyone due to travel from London Heathrow check the status of your flight for the latest on your flight before you leave from Heathrow airport. Please also make sure your contact details are up to date in Manage My Booking.

London Gatwick and London City Airport flights are unaffected.

If you are travelling short haul and your flight is still due to go ahead, but you would prefer not to fly from London Heathrow, then you can opt to rebook your journey for another day up to and including 20 February. To make changes to your journey, you should contact us.

My flight has been cancelled today, Monday 17 February, what are my options?

If your flight is cancelled, we will rebook you onto the next available flight to your destination, and if the delay involves an overnight wait, then we will pay for hotel accommodation and meals for you. If you would prefer to take a refund for this journey, or change to a different date (up to 20 February), then please contact us.

If issues with Heathrow Airport’s baggage systems means you have travelled but your have not yet received your bag

If you have not yet reported your bag

If you have arrived at your destination without your baggage, you are able to report this online.

> Report your delayed bags online

It appears that BA have decided to remove the CE middle seat block on some shorthaul flights to get people away. I am hoping this sticks, then my standby seat should become available (hopefully!).

I have no problem with this as it helps people get
home, etc. but would it be reasonable to expect some Avios for not getting the advertised CE product, and if so, how many?

Worth a note that the late LHR-HEL flight was AY1340 (aka BA6036). It landed HEL just a while ago with 1h03 later than scheduled, although the departure occured 1h48 late. BA794 on the same route departed about on time (mere 12 minute delay) and managed to land 39 minutes early. Clearly the winds favour eastbound flights, although for the late flight the strong headwinds did not cause the delay since the plane overnighted in LHR.

LHR to AGP today

Luckly I am on the return which (currently) is showing the middle seat is unused in all 12 rows of club! The crew wont have had the rub of the green on these sectors...

In case you haven't already seen this thread - Club Europe - Middle Seat Divider Removed - Compensation?

CWS - has there been any further updates to the list of cancellations? My daughter got stuck in LHR last night and is due on the last flight to NCL tonight.

Indeed, I was not suggesting BA to refund, I was surprised HAL did not show any goodwill. Btw I did not even ask for a refund, just to credit the money to another parking booking.

Anyway good advice, I will send them a more formal request. Let's see what they say.

There are a few more cancellations, I can see a MAN cancelled (15:15) and a GLA (18:00) but no extra NCL cancellations apart from the one above.

I was scheduled to fly out on BA1492 (LHR-GLA), however I received an email earlier in the day prior to my DUS-LHR flight saying that my onward flight was cancelled (no reason given). They told me to login to the website and rebook on BA1478, which I did. Anyone know if EC rules apply here?
