SunAir (BA)

Not sure if this is the right thread, I spoke to SunAir yesterday as was hoping MAN/BLL would possibly be available back end of August. They told me that, as things stand, they don't expect to operate any scheduled flights until October at the earliest.

My NHS app record does actually show the vaccine used. My problem is that it says AZ whereas back in January when I had the jab, I was told it was Pfizer and that is also on the record card I was given!

Damn, no late-Summer weekend trip to London for us then (of course assuming the situation would have improved by then, and with full vaccinations).

Were you given the Pfizer patient information leaflet? That's an A3 folded in two to give 4 sides of A4, with wide white margins. The AZ patient information sheet is a single A4 sheet of paper, double sided and the page fairly densely covered in text. In January most jabs were Pfizer. I would ring up your GP surgery and discuss it with reception - it's not a trivial error. I did come across one case of this on Friday when I was based in a care home and the patient, her daughter, her card and her informaiton leaflet all said Pfizer but the computer said AZ. So it could affect second appointments (have you had that yet?) and things like any arrangement for autumn booster shots.

Your record card should also show the batch number of the vaccine that you were given, which should enable the Drs. surgery to identify what ought be on your records.

Thanks CWS and Robert279 for the replies. Have phoned the GPs and awaiting their reply. Neither my OH or myself (on separate days) were given either of the patient info leaflets you mentioned, only an NHS generic "what to expect" 8 page document. Luckily I have the original vacination card with Pfizer and batch number and have not had the second appointment yet. Also probably needed sorted out if/when vaccination passports are introduced.

I am sorry that happened, that information leaflet has important information on it and you should have got a copy. So absolutely, you are right to contact the GP about this, and I imagine you are now running close to 12 weeks too, in terms of the second dose. Pfizer isn't much in circulation at the moment, so many people done in January would have already had their second dose, hence my concern. AZ however is in reasonably good supply this week at least so if that's what the computer says then no-one would be too bothered.

Speculation and wishful thinking! FI (Icelandair) is restarting a seasonal service from PDX to KEF this summer as well as 9 other N American routes; with that, thoughts on BA thinking about PDX again particularly with Alaskan Airlines as One World and no other (currently) TATL direct to Europe. Wishful thinking, but perhaps shared service with SEA?

Probably PDX and some other secondary US cities ( CHS, BWI, PIT, BNA, etc... ) are a no-go for this summer.
The reason behind Icelandair starting PDX and other US cities is most likely because of Iceland accepting vaccinated travelers from the USA without any quarantine, thus the high demand.

Also for AS connections the x4 weekly BA + x3 weekly AA service to SEA from LHR should be enough for the meanwhile.

This replaces:

Interesting, had a feeling they would do so eventually. At least we now know where the 3 LGW based 4 class 777s are going now.

Those flights (4 pw) wouldn't completely use one of the LGW 4-class 777s so either they will just be used on any LHR route - or there is something more to come
