British Airways is continuing to pick up aircraft wherever and however it can – within the EU rules – to fill the slots at London Gatwick which it recently acquired from the administrators of Monarch.
BA has now signed a deal with Italian holiday airline NEOS – which to be honest I’d never heard of – to supply “a small number” of aircraft to run flights from Gatwick this Summer.
If you find yourself booked on a NEOS plane, you will now receive free food and drink in Economy. Seat reservation fees will be refunded. If you do not want to fly with NEOS, you can ask to be moved to a BA-operated flight within three days of the date of your booked service, or receive a full refund of your ticket price.
There will be no Club Europe service on the NEOS aircraft.
