June 2021 flight cancellations and operational changes

LHR-SOF-LHR had time changes . it seems that they are only operating one flight pair and moved them to 11:20 departure in LHR and 17:20 departure in SOF... no different flight times on different days anymore (except weekends)

my AUGUST SOF flight was already cancelled...so it looks like they may be tinkering with it as its only 5x week in AUG.

July SOF flights amended too.. why so far out on that route? I’d have thought with quite a lot of 1000 ex SOF fares booked there would be more traffic on this route with positioning flights than other destinations.

with that few flights and only a limited seats in J class you limit the number of "1000 ex SOF fares" booked. i dont see that fare as a cash cow for BA.

LHR-SOF early June cancelled also for me, with automatic rebooking for the next day. That's not going to work, so if I keep the ex-SOF trip, I'll change this last flight to somewhere else. In any case I'm not touching this booking until a closer date.

same. the new flight is the same day as my connection to JFK so will just wait this one out to see how the situation improves for summer

BLL flights early June not on sale but not yet cancelled. BA holding on to the money for a bit I expect. I will wait patiently for the cancellation

It seems odd that BA have cut down flights up to 7th June. If foreign travel is allowed from 17th May, then there is probably demand for more than 1 (expensive) flight a day to BCN for example.

i think, BA believes that foreign travel will not be allowed from 17th May.

5-6 flights a day to Athens. Focus on holiday destinations?

I think it's not only about the UK allowing its residents to travel, it's also about countries which will have us. Greece seems pretty open, mainland Spain less so.

Spain are saying they want UK tourists back in May.
