Yes, I'm seeing the same, though I used it a few days ago. BA is no longer an option on the dropdown list, so you can't enter a BA flight number any more.

So I'm guessing it's Salesforce only from now on.

Thanks for the corroboration. It's disappointing that BA e-mailed me yesterday suggesting that I use it!

Knowing BA expect it to be 5-7 years before that email stops going out.

Ill admit I had forgotten all about VeriFLY and the need for an attestation form etc, despite it only being a few months since my last US trip.

Heading to SFO on Wednesday - whats the easiest way now to make the whole check-in experience smooth if VeriFLY is no longer an option?

I flew from FRA - MIA (on LH Direct) yesterday. At OLCI I was asked if I had read the rules etc for Covid which I ticked and at actual checkin was only asked if I had an ESTA etc. I downloaded a paper attestation form and printed/signed it just in case but at Miami immigration (where i have GE) I was not asked anything, just how long I was going to stay and then I was outside in 5 mins.

Use this Salesforce link when you are less than 3 days but more than 2 days from departure, and only reference the flight that gets you into the first port in the USA. So if you mean LHR-SFO then that flight, if NCL-LHR-JFK-SFO then it's LHR to JFK.

So BA and LH share their OLCI process now?

If the US drop their COVID travel requirement mandate on 11 May does that mean we will no longer have to go through the Salesforce process?

That would be my expectation.

Hopefully come May that's end of it re uploading stuff and all travel for all countries will quickly go back to the way pre-covid fingers crossed 🤞

Whilst COVID is still something to be dealt with/be aware of/vaccinated etc I think after 3 years the time is right given what we know about the disease etc and I'm sure it will make things much easier for not just passengers but BA too.

Strangely they both have the same requirements for entry into the US - maybe hard for you to comprehend
