Is my flight cancelled?

Hi all,

A new one for me that I'm hoping someone can help with.

I'm booked to fly on BA306 from Heathrow to Paris (CDG) at 8.40am on Saturday 5th March, however the flight dissapeared from BA.com about 4 days ago, and isn't bookable. I haven't had a cancelation email and I can still log into my booking and move seats etc. and I not the aircraft has changed from A320 to A319 at some point, but knowing BA's IT, it maybe takes a while for the cancelation to filter through to existing bookings?

I've not seen this before and it's a bit annoying from a planning perspective trying to anticpate if we'll end up on the earlier flight, so hoping someone can suggest what might be going on?

Thanks

On Sat 5 Mar, BA306 is not cancelled, but it is zeroed. BA is still holding a number of reservations for it, as shown by the fact that there are some pre-allocated seats in both cabins.

BA is likely to be hedging its bets on whether the flight will be cancelled. But if it is, there's an 0715 and a 1305 to choose from as alternatives.

It's very likely to be cancelled.

I've encountered similar with my return flight from Antigua on 14 March (confirmed in my BA EC app). When going into BA website to check the cash price of my Avios 2-4-1 booking (don't we all like to know how much we are saving with a redemption?) the message for the return flight says 'We don't fly the route on the date you have chosen' and shows either 13 or 15 March flights. My outward flight on 2 March is still there as a booking option.

I have not had any message/email from BA re a flight change from 14 March. Am I being dumb, missed something or should I be concerned?

BA2256 ANU-LGW on 14 March is still on sale and still has W9 Y9, using a UK POS.

IME flights can be zeroed out and not purchasable for several days before some process in BA actually cancels the flight.

That's a relief, thanks.

I have 2 flights zeroed out for a couple of months LHR-HND and the return in June. It looks like they can keep us waiting as long as they want!
