It's not selling seats and not in the list in post 279 above so looks likely you'll get a text/email soon.

Same situation to YVR on 20/05.

Customer services wouldnít let me cancel (even though they agreed it would be cancelled!) for free so Iíll just have to waste the time again when it is actually cancelled.

Flights havenít been on sale for at-least 5 days.

BA806 LHR - BLL on 23 May was cancelled by BA, as was the return flight on 25 May. Got refunded in full.

Awaiting notification of cancellation for LHR-AMM on 16th May. Hasn't been on sale for a while and isn't on the list of flights in Post 279, but still appearing in MMB.

FWIW, although RJ still announces a planned resumption of flight operations on 27-April, both press reports and some embassy websites point out that the "Government of Jordan announced on April 4 that borders and airports will remain closed until after Ramadan, which is expected to conclude around May 23."

Yes - thank you for that. The most prominent website stating this is the US Embassy website, although I don't seem to be able to find anything on a Jordan Govt. website. Wait & see I guess.

Most likely, you would receive the cancellation e-mail today or tomorrow.

Health Minister (in the press): https://en.royanews.tv/news/20578/He...-after-Ramadan

But until BA cancels the flight, it's all academic anyway....

Wondering if the governments furlough extension through June will mean will also extend staff furlough for this month and continue with similar schedule in June to what’s being flown in May.

Nothing to do with flight deck commonality, purely about capacity at this stage. The A350 has a higher capacity than 777/787 and therefore not needed as yet. In addition, from a cabin crew perspective, easier to manage as 777/787 counts as one licence and therefore can move cabin crew if required. The A350 would add complexity that isn't needed at this time. There is still likely to be some cargo only flights on the A350 but limited based on where BA has approval to operate that aircraft type.
