Podgorica is zeroed for the entire summer season,

It might be a technical glitch; or
BA might have decided to drop this route

It is zeroed out on ExpertFlyer on 4 and 11 July meaning the flight cannot currently be booked. That could be a sign of a pending cancellation. You’ll likely know for sure in the next few days.

I had a 10% hope that we might have this holiday so now feel very depressed. Thanks for looking.

If Montenegro opens its border for tourists, BA would not be the only option.
I am pretty sure that Ryanair or Wizz would operate flights over there but the schedules might not fit yours.

Thanks yes believe Montenegro airport will be open according to local news that's why I'm disappointed. Just looked at Easyjet so much more expensive on their standard fare compared to CE I booked !!

Hope somebody can advise ...

Have a package holiday booked mid June LGW - Cancun. Have just done a dummy run and flight is now showing departing from LHR -Miami-Cancun. Would this change give us grounds to cancel our holiday and claim a refund? Tia

Atm for Montenegro the update on the IATA sites shows as follows:

https://www.iatatravelcentre.com/int...1580226297.htm

MONTENEGRO -- published 15.03.2020
1. Passengers are not allowed to enter Montenegro.
- This does not apply to nationals of Montenegro.
- This does not apply to passengers who reside in Montenegro.
2. Nationals and residents of Montenegro will be required to self-isolate for 14 days.
I am not sure whether there is any expectation of that changing by July.

LGW-CUN zeroed until 1 July.
You would receive a cancellation notice soon.

By the way, was this a BA holiday or was the flight booked separately?

On the basis your LGW-CUN direct flight is presumably cancelled - what does your MMB show? - then yes you would be entitled to cancel and get a full refund.

Its being reported locally as part of their lockdown easing, they are ahead of us.

Thank you for your reply... appreciated. Yes, it’s a BA holiday booked direct with them.

It's too early to presume July from now.

By the way, Austrian Airlines have GBP339 r/t flights in Business Class from LHR to TGD via VIE for the same dates of your travel.

This might be your back-up plan if borders open by then.

their lockdown easing doesn’t necessarily mean the removal of travel restrictions...
