No! We’re taking a chance on the weather, partly based on the style/facilities of the hotel. We don’t tend to lie on the beach and cook ourselves!!

From 1st September BA CityFlyer will be operating London City to Belfast City, filling the void left by FlyBe. Flights will initially operate one rotation a day Sunday to Friday.

I know this is the August thread, but I am putting in an advance request

I have a LCY-NCE RFS booked for September 1st, with a separate NCE-LCY RFS for September 17th and I'm well aware that these may well get cancelled. I'm BAEC Blue so will be very much at the back of the queue when it comes to rebooking options and the likes. I don't have much flexibility for the dates o I'd be extremely grateful for any info if/when anyone is aware of what is likely to happen with those flughts.
LHR is a complete utter pain to get to, and my usual plan B (LX via ZRH} is a currently not an option due to the total lack of LX flights from LCY at the moment...

TIA

Flying to and from Miami in September, doesn't look like those have been cancelled yet, and the August schedule (2 x BA, 1 x AA daily) is, I think, in line with their normal schedule, so probably won't be cancelled unless something changes. All we need is for Mr Trump to un-ban us, and maybe even for the Corona outbreak to calm down a bit. Not sure either look overly likely at this stage...

Given that the US is not on the list of non-quarantine countries, it feels more likely than not that there will be further cancellations to and from the US.

As I understand it, the usual schedule is 3 daily BA flights to Miami.

I thought it was two BA flights and the AA one. It used to be three BA - it was when I started looking at these flights but it had been scaled back to the two by the time I booked which I think was around November last year.

Still waiting for BA long-haul cancellation - a return leg from DEN to LHR on 19 Sept which I expect not to run because of the US 'point of entry' rules + general explosion of cases in the US. But AA have started their September schedule shuffle, cancelling a connecting domestic flight for us on 5 Sept (ORD-DEN), allowing our group to cancel and get the full refund. Relieved I can start the cancellation process for everything else we had already booked way back in January.

it has been 3 BA rotations in the winter season before, but this last winter season the third rotation (the late BA departure got binned around Christmas time)

September is towards the tail end of the hurricane season, so if you are unlucky you might get caught up in one. You amay get a tropical storm if you are there for 10 days or more, again it depends on luck. There will be showers most days, some heavy but not lasting too long. And lots of sunshine either way.

If you are all inclusive it can be quite surreal sitting in the bar watching the rain hammer down outside.

I'm in the same boat, but coming back on the 6th Sept. To add to the complexity my outbound leg is to Vancouver near the end of August, and all travelers arriving before 31/08 must self isolate for 14 days, but i am there for 7 days before moving on the the USA

BA1 & 2 CNX Sep

- Just received the following email from BA this morning:- (14 Jul)
'We're very sorry to let you know that your BA1 flight to New York J F Kennedy on Monday, 07 September 2020 has been cancelled.'
Looking at Expert flyer it appears that this service (& BA2) have been cancelled for Sep 20. I have not looked at dates into Oct or beyond.
