Urgent help [to get from Outer Hebrides to London]

urgent advice needed, trying to get from the outer Hebrides to Heathrow for work as currently work as a doctor. Had a flight booked as a BA code share from Benbecula to Glasgow and then Glasgow to Heathrow. my first flight has been cancelled, attempted to call Logan air who can only hold the booking on the flight which has been arranged for 20 minutes prior, advised to speak to British Airways but at present this seems nigh on impossible to get through to anyone.
any advice or anyone know of anything else I can do as its of the utmost importance I get to London.

Get on a ferry and either train or drive is the best I can think of if there’s no alternative

There was an offer of a one way drive in the hire cars from Scotland to LHR showing a week or two ago that might be worth checking if you are driving

If you can get to GLA or EDI then there BA services running from there. If you were checked in then the Menzies staff at GLA or EDI who work for BA can rebook you very easily.

The call centre lines are not as busy as they have been on late so try 0203 250 0145

Can you get up to Stornoway if they're operating from there to GLA/EDI

I would suggest heading for the airport at Benbecula first thing in the morning. The staff may be able to speak to Loganair directly rather than their or BA’s reservations.

Looking at the flight status section of the Loganair website for tomorrow, it seems that there is a LM471 departing for Glasgow at 10:40 and originating in Stornoway. Loganair announced last week that the Benbecula and Stornoway flights were being combined. It might be this has not been captured for the code share bookings.

Have you considered paying a fishing boat skipper for a ride?
