Well, we're currently booked in November on BA728 going the other way, so that's gotta mean a BA279 coming in. And the only reason we're not coming back on BA279 (and going to San Diego) is that no...

Related: We booked a points stay some time ago for a couple of weeks from now. Prices were high. Now they have quite good cash rates (like EUR 120) for non-refundable bookings. This is a Twin and we...

Interesting, thanks. But, if this were the case (and I'm not doubting), what would be the justification for a cancellation say 6-8 months out? If this one airframe were inoperative for that long, why...

This flight sequence (BA 278, SJC-LHR, BA 279 LHR-SJC) seems to receive a great many cancellations. And these are weeks to months in advance (so not mechanical). We had a recent LHR-SJC cancelled for...
