Is this from checking their website booking or did you see a news update?
I have a flight booked for May 24, status is On Time, even though all the flights to Miami are unavailable to book until May 25 for a while.
Curious when they'll send the cancellation notice, it's less than 3 weeks to the flight.

I received my cancellation notice for a flight on the 23rd May to MCO today, so I imagine it'll be in the next day or two.

We received a cancellation notice for LHR-SFO on May 21, but manage my booking still shows it as booked and on time. The cancellation notice came from the Flying Club and didn't reference any booking code or passenger name.

Still have a booking open from MIA to LHR on June 5th. Return June 30th. Will not be going but have been advised here to wait for them to cancel the flight and only then seek a refund as health dictates don't think we will have an opportunity to fly next year. What are the chances that they will cancel now?

Great news if true. Surely the US needs to lift the travel ban on countries from Europe, and the UK foreign office need to change their current advice on travel.
heres hoping, we’re due to go LHR-MIA September 🙏🏼

I didn't think there was a travel ban? Saw yesterday a few flights from London to NY and LA?

Restriction remain in place. The flights are for repatriation and exemptions
