    That’s twice within a week now. (I understand that Sunday’s flight was cancelled too). What is going on with BA?

      Sunday’s flights were also cancelled – I was in London and was supposed to return to BDA on 2233 that day. BA said the aircraft made an emergency landing with a mechanical problem inbound to Gatwick and maintenance would not release the aircraft for the round trip. The thing of it was, BA admitted they had a replacement aircraft at Heathrow that could have replaced the broken aircraft but they decided not to bring the plane to Gatwick and instead rebooked all of us. 2233 on Monday was already sold out, so all of us from Sunday’s flight had to be rebooked through the US. On Monday, unfortunately, flights to Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Atlanta and Orlando don’t operate. BA 117, the first flight Monday morning to JFK, was oversold (I got the last seat on that plane). BA were rebooking people for two night stays at Gatwick, or sending them to NY on later flights Monday where they again had to stay overnight to take the American flight on Tuesday evening. The Gatwick BA staff were incredibly slow to react to all this, I waited in line for 2 1/2 hours to get my arrangements rebooked.

    Time to look at Virgin Atlantic!

      Because Virgin Atlantic NEVER has planes go mechanical?

  4. It appears British Airways has us by the short and curly… We fly just about annually via England to connect with Emirate onto Asia. After arriving in Dubai we’ll check into a hotel for a lay-over prior to continuing…I say that to say this, all of our flights are pre-arraigned and these cancellation are a grave interruption and must cease! B.A. must release the monopoly on the route to Bermuda and maybe come down on their airfares to create better business / customer relationships.
