the chances of them all actually running are close to zero. i don't know how they have made that list, but perhaps they have just scrapped from the system for what is currently bookable. BA has only just started doing long haul cancellations for September so that list is likely to be inaccurate very soon.

Probably, but this list came from a BA update that went online yesterday. The previous list for June and July did not have Las Vegas when their updates dropped. But I’m guessing this is what BA hopes ro
operate in September

I agree, I suspect the LGW will disappear as well as some LHRs. Vegas is a ghost town at the moment (and not open to EU/UK traffic), I’d love to get back to the US but I’m not holding much hope for the rest of the year.

Is BKK or ICN now BA’s longest B788 sector?

My BA191 to Austin on 07/09 has been cancelled. Trying to get through for a refund is proving as difficult as expected. It just says they are too busy and cuts you off. Would rather sit on hold for someone to become available than be cut off.

ABZ now loaded as 4 * daily and GLA as 5 * daily so a big increase compared to the August schedule.

Not an accurate list - My September BA Holidays LHR>DEN flights were cancelled on Tuesday and the deposit is automatically heading back to my Amex account. Rather than 1 flight a day it's gone down to 4 a week and my bookings were on days they won't be flying. Interesting that BAH didn't rebook me onto the flights that are (supposedly) operating a day later.

i mean i presume any US flight is speculative right now if it is for a destination other than the current 15 allowable airports with hopes that it will be broadened?

given the disaster that is the US, i'd be surprised it happens in a month, but better for airlines to be prepared.

There's a thread dedicated to refunds (here). You'll almost certainly get through faster in a few days' time.

BA has cancelled a lot of flights in the past couple of days and extended their policy allowing anyone to cancel any booking in exchange for a voucher to cover September flights. So a lot of people will be trying to get through to BA even though, for most of them, there's no objective reason to be in a rush.

I know BA’s IT couldn’t cope with providing date-stamps, but it’s incredibly frustrating trying to look at future bookings without any on-screen indication of whether you’re looking at historic schedules (as yet unamended) or the latest data. Even with the knowledge pool here, for the ‘average’ user it’s still a bit ‘finger in the wind’.

I wouldn’t count on that sticking.

My GLA flights for August 14th and 23rd were only cancelled on Monday, long after the main August purge.

As for the routesonline lists, they should be taken with a huge pinch of salt. BA obviously files the schedule it aspires to operate, but the reality will inevitably be very different.

Also it is possible book with confidence & future travel vouchers are extended in some form in to September so that may be an option.
Thanks for this KARFA. Have now been advised that my LHR-ABZ flight has been cancelled which effectively allows me to cancel the whole booking without charge. I also have a hotel and car hire booked separately through BA as our flights were booked using a 2-4-1 and Avios. Has anyone any experience of the stance BA are taking for refunds on these when they cancel a flight. The hotel booking was non-cancellable but offered 15 Avios per £ spent whereas the car hire through Avis states that a fee of 25% is chargeable on cancellation.
