I'd agree. Holding your nerve is probably the only thing you can do. Personally I don't see LGW - LAS flights restarting anytime soon. As for LHR - LAS this would, as you say, be dependent on LAS becoming a designated approved entry point into the USA as well as a relaxation of the current restrictions on who can fly to the USA. I'm holding out for November but I am starting to think that may be optimistic.

You are correct that neither LAS nor MCO will accept flights from Europe, and my crystal ball says that the restrictions are unlikely to go away by October.

I understand AA's been lobbying hard to get CLT added to the list; I don't know if anyone's championing LAS or MCO; probably not.

(Just to be pedantic, MCO at least is still "international" in that it has Latin American flights.)

I’ve just booked for Gibraltar in October and it says to/from Terminal 3 at Heathrow. I presume that it just hasn’t updated to T5 as I can’t see T3 opening then or will it?

I wonder what happens to a part flown booking (outbound done 11.5 months ago) that is cancelled on inbound - pax wants a refund of unused portion (and unused half-guf) as they are unwilling to reschedule beyond ticket validity making the return useless.

You will get an Involuntary Refund on the cash component, which will take a few weeks to arrange, It's not necessarily half of the original booking, various factors apply, so getting a third back may be a realistic expectation. The GUF won't be returned, but you may get a customer service gesture on that if Customer Relations are contacted.

Yes, it will be T5 and they are working through the schedules by date order since tickets have to be reissued or revalidated. Ditto those with bookings from LGW or other routes not yet updated such as LCY-JFK. It may be worth a call to BA in late September if it hasn't changed by then.

Thank you - I know the cash part will be difficult not least because the outbound was INVOL incorrectly prior to departure so i imagine it will take a while to get right. On GUF, what might such gesture be?

Some Avios perhaps? I don't think we've seen many reports on this one, so I'm just guessing. GUFs can be used on single trips so there will be an argument that since you will get a cash refund such that it becomes a single trip, then you have had your GUF benefit.

A minor technicality perhaps, but there’s no reval/reissue required for a terminal change within the same airport. You’re right that altering the flight will trigger a ‘schedule change’ notification, however, and it does require manual intervention to start this process.

At the moment no, come October time, it is anybody's guess. I am surprised they still have a daily service to Singapore scheduled for September.

I have a trip to SIN in November and to KL and Penang in January. I'm not expecting either to go ahead.

I agree, my trip in Oct-Nov to Singapore and my Dec trip to KL and Kuching I think are not going to happen but still hopeful.
