Will BA holidays let me move departure date back by 10 days to one of the days they are flying the route (ever hopeful it will be running then)?
IMO there won't be any passenger flights into DEN for the foreseeable future. It is a complete guess as to when the US authorities will revoke the proclamation stopping foreign nationals from arriving if they have travelled through Europe / the UK etc in the 14 days preceding. And it is for Homeland Security to determine when they will allow arrivals into airports other than the '15': https://www.dhs.gov/coronavirus/prot...merican-public If you have a visa or residency or citizenship that allows entry then you will need to re-route through one of those 15 airports for entry and then take a domestic connection onwards; and you would need to quarantine for 14 days from arrival from LHR. So for a leisure trip it really doesn't make any sense to re-book your flights until the US decide they want visitors.

BA just cancelled my LHR-JFK segment in September on a 747.

I realize this is off-topic, but any crystal ball insights as to if/when the UK may change their 14-day quarantine rules for a subset of the US (i.e. the North-East, with JFK, EWR, BOS, etc). With comparable or lower COVID rates, and the North-East states having 14-day quarantine rules of their own from the rest of the US, might the UK open up a special corridor?

PHX is now down to 3 days a week for September on a 788 only.

Glad to have found this thread, if just for mental support.

I booked flights and a non-refundable hotel from London to Athens, Greece from September 8 - 16th. Booked on February 12th, so not allowed to change without severe penalties. My best friend is in San Francisco (we're American) - so she can't travel to Europe. I have no hopes of this being cancelled by BA - so poof to 1800.

Did you have travel insurance in place when you booked in February?

Hope they're doing this alphabetically and Seattle gets the chop next.

It feels very odd to be actively wanting a cancellation!
