Due to the heavy snow and freezing temperatures expected at Heathrow this afternoon, there are major delays and cancellations of flights to be expected.

National Air Traffic Services has informed Heathrow Airport of expected delays due to the need to de-ice aircraft before they can take off and to continually remove snow and ice from the runways and taxiways.

If you check the status for BA flights from heathrow on this BA site, you can see that a number of flights have either departed early, are delayed or have been cancelled.

If you are booked on a flight between 3pm and midnight today, you can rebook for free.  This offer is available even if your flight is currently still showing as operating.  BA wants to keep as many people away from Heathrow as possible this afternoon.

Free rebooking is available onto any flight departing on Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

    What snow???? Had an awful BA flight from dublin. 2.5 hours delay. No stock to service the new m&s joke. No point to go BA now for this trip.

    O:T again, Is there anyone getting the 2500 HH points for their first 4 stays at Hilton properties when using the Hilton Honors Credit Card at Hilton Properties? I was wondering if it was still working.

      yep had my first two already, posted automatically, used the card to pay for F&B at checkout not the rooms in both cases

      or do you mean someone who is still getting them after the first 4?

  • The Original Nick says:

    No, that’s exactly what I meant as I’m going to apply again soon and have quite a few stays coming up. Thanks.
