If you have taken full advantage of the 355 days advance booking period, you may have a British Airways Avios redemption or cash ticket from Gatwick booked for next Summer.
If you do, I recommend you have a look at your booking to see if it is still active. BA tends to take a few weeks to contact people and, by then, your most convenient alternative may be gone.
BA announced a substantial number of cancellations to the 2016 Gatwick Summer schedule yesterday. This appears to be the result of long-term mechanical issues which will see an additional A320 aircraft no longer joining the Gatwick fleet. Marrakech and Malta take the biggest hits.
The cancellations are:
Cancelled for the full March – October season:
Genoa – 1 flight per week (6-8 remain)
Glasgow – 1 flight per week (26 remain, no great loss!)
Nice – 3 flights per week (20 remain)
The following will be cancelled for, roughly, the Summer school holiday period:
Marrakech – 2 flights per week (3 flights will remain)
Catania – 1 flight per week (7 remain)
Malta – 2 flights per week (5 remain)
Dubrovnik – 1 flight per week (7 remain)
Verona – 1 flight per week (2-3 remain), non-school holiday periods only
Tenerife – 1 flight per week (5 remain), May / June only
