British Airways drops flights from London Gatwick to Fort Lauderdale

It was obviously never the case that British Airways only launched London Gatwick to Fort Lauderdale in Florida back in 2017 as a spoiler to annoy Norwegian.

This means that it is a total coincidence that, 25 days after Norwegian switched its own Gatwick to Fort Lauderdale service to Miami, British Airways has announced that it is closing the route.

British Airways drops Fort Lauderdale

The last flight will operate on 7th September.

If you were booked onto the Fort Lauderdale route, you can either request a full refund or switch to a Miami, Orlando or Tampa service.

  1. OT – Flying Club. Any way to get points from the other half’s Tesco CC account into one VFC account? I can’t figure a way, but just checking in case… Thanks in advance

    Have Amex plat

    Does the insurance cover a GP visit when abroad ?
    I estimate cost would be around 70 euros.

    Is there any excess on this policy?

    Sure that the ET flight between DUB and MAD is tagged on to the ADD-DUB flight? The timings look like something that could arrive horribly early at MAD (from ADD) and leave very late from MAD (for ADD).
