Malaga has been given another daily LHR flight from September. Another big boost in capacity and shows the demand is really for leisure destinations.

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.
BA1 cancelled until 26OCT. I doubt, it start even then..

The Orlando Airport website claims BA will be operating LGW-MCO from September 1st.

Iíll also believe it when I see it. Either the airportís been told itíll be allowed to accept UK passenger flights by September, or itís playing the speculation game like everyone else.

Considering that Florida is clocking 10-15k cases a day and that they've had almost as many cases as the entirety of Italy but with a third of the population... I somehow doubt it. It's grim for BA (but it's not as if other, better prepared, countries like Korea or Japan or Vietnam are opening up anytime soon either).

Any updates on the inaugural PDX-LHR flight - still able to book September 2nd; however, with the current state of Covid-19 and other restrictions, it looks highly unlikely? (Although here in Oregon, it hasnít been too bad- touch wood) My sense is that BA will re-launch in 2021.

Oh I agree, it doesn't stop us from dreaming though

Only a fool would want to visit Trump's America at the moment where, we are told, the virus is 'well under control' according to the stable genius ... ...

I agree. I've spent a good 10 minutes, during a call today, at my Apple wallet: I had boarding passes for SCL, PUQ, DEL, IXL ALA and FRU that were meant to be happening this year. I'm still debating whether to delete them or not...

Anyone with a crystal ball?

How far into Sep have BA got now with changes? And will the 744 announcement further delay clarity?

Personal Problem ... actually need our ANU trip w/BA Holidays (13-23 Sep) to be CNX, as we can’t actually get the Covid Antigen test here in Jersey that’s needed!! Booked in Jan, so also outside the Book with Confidence policy window!

Uncle T , I did hear that for sixty of your Jersey Pounds your could get an antibody test at LV Pharmacy in Beresford Street, Queenís Road Pharmacy in Queenís Road and Reids Pharmacy outlets in New Street, Charing Cross, Longueville, the Lido Medical Centre and Bagatelle Road.

This may or may not be current but certainly was in the Jersey News last month - is this good enough for your needs?

Hi, Bob ... and many thanks for your research! But, sadly ANU needs an Antigen test (the mouth/nose swab) not an Antibody (pinprick) blood test. I spoke to the C-19 Crisis team here earlier today ... no immediate prospect of private Antigen testing. Currently hoping (and why I posted here) that the LGW-ANU schedule is sufficiently mangled in mid-Sep to qualify for Refund (or Voucher, if pressed!).

I too have Caribbean (BGI) flights for late September from LGW. August is notionally showing only two flights a week to BGI, whereas September is showing 5 flights per week.

Although somewhat speculative, do we think it is likely that BA will be operating at these proposed number of flights per week in September, or might they cancel/reduce this frequency of flights in September if they canít fill the planes up?
