Roughly when might we see cancellations for May?
Booked on a flight to Tokyo at the end of May but very unlikely Iíd be permitted to enter unless major changes in Japanese entry requirements.

My friends in Japan told me that because of Olympics, Japan will need to decide by end of next month (end of March, or very close to that deadline) when to reopen borders, so that sufficient notice can given. Personally, I would say the chance of getting in in May is under 50%, but I am fairly confident that mid June I will be able to get in.
It will be interesting to see if something like a "vaccine passport" will be required but I suspect the situation of UK travelers will reverse from one of the worst impacted countries, to one of the safest (due do vaccine rollout) and we may well end of on Japan's "safe country" list.

Europe only for me, but I've had a SOF-SFO trip cancelled in mid May due to the reduction in LHR-SOF rotations and a MAD trip cancelled, which was booked with BA but on IB metal.

YVR now cancelled up until the 1st May, so only a matter of time until May starts being cancelled.

Annoyingly we are booked to fly out 12th May and back 1st June on 50% reward flights, hoping to cancel and move to next year at this rate!

My flights to/from Madeira on 18 and 21 May were cancelled several weeks ago by BA who were very efficient in processing and repaying a full refund.

BA676 LHR-IST on 7 May 2021 cancelled.

All Turkey routes have been now cancelled until 17 May 2021 because of Turkey not accepting passengers arriving from the UK until an unspecified date.

I am wondering if they will keep the ALCs at LHR for late May. I note all that the VLC departures seem to have gone for late May.
