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?
This is a thought I've had myself. But always a vain thought, seeing no chance of it happening. But, opening things up would also require the U.S. rescinding "the proclamation", which I suppose has a better chance of happening eventually.

It feels very odd to be actively wanting a cancellation!
Yes, it does! LOL. I was supposed to be in Langkawi right now. Singapore Airlines refunded me we with no hassles, Malaysia Airlines kept my money for domestic flights. Oye!

Sorry, I didn't hit the "Quote" Button:
I have automatic travel insurance with my HSBC Premier Card, but I don't think I will be covered as the trip has not been cancelled. I haven't spoken to HSBC yet as I was hoping that BA would cancel. I will hold out until mid-August. I am not sure why BA is being so flexible for only those who booked after March 3rd. I didn't know there was going to be a pandemic on Feb 12th. I would be happy to re-book, but BA said my booking date was outside of the free re-booking or voucher offer.

BA just emailed me, my LHR-HND (BA7) for 23rd September has been cancelled. Used a 241 for First class, not sure yet if I'll take the voucher or avios back.

You may be covered under another section of the policy.

I will have another read through my policy. Since my best friend cannot travel to Europe, I hope this is good enough grounds for HSBC to cover me.

I now have noticed that all the Sat flights in Sep and Oct have gone to 0 availability so I think that the route has been scratched for the time being.
Out flight to PDX next May has been cancelled - looks like the route has gone.

Not sure if the route will be operating next year - our flight to PDX in May has just been cancelled. Looks as though the route has gone.

Any tips of when is best to get through to the call centre? Seems they won't even take calls atm due to volume.

My 1st October JNB-LHR (BA56) has been canned. A quick look on Google flights tells me they have dropped the A380 to/from JNB for Sept.

I got through in 15 minutes earlier today about 4pm. The 1st time I tried it hung up on me but the 2nd time I pressed 4 for other and got through easily enough.

My brother’s flight to IAD for 10Sept and return a fortnight later was cancelled today. He is pleased as he no longer wanted to go now, preferring to delay things until next year. He’ll phone tomorrow for a refund.

Think that they may have binned the route for pax for at least the early part of September at least if not more. Our trip to Phoenix dep 8 September ret 17 Sept. was downgraded from F to J yesterday (aircraft change 777-788) but cancelled completely today by BA holidays with full refund without input from me. Suits us just fine, thanks BA.
