British Airways has announced a couple of additional route suspensions.
The underperforming Gatwick to Oakland route – which was only set up in the first place to annoy Norwegian – is now suspended for Summer 2019, ie from late March.
It was already suspended for the October to March Winter season so it is fair to say that this one can now be treated as permanently cancelled.
You can either rebook on a BA San Francisco service or fly British Airways to Seattle and connect to an Alaska Airways flight to Oakland.
The Gatwick to Fuerteventura route is also cancelled from 25th November.
You can choose to be rebooked on Aer Lingus, routing Heathrow to Dublin (BA only) to Fuerteventura. Plan B is to use Brussels Airways, routing Heathrow to Brussels on BA. Note that Aer Lingus and Brussels Airways do not have a business class cabin.
