British Airways has released the first batch of flight cancellations and terminal switches for Monday.
This is due to industrial action by Heathrow employees.
According to BA travel trade reports, the following flights are cancelled but will still depart (empty) so the inbound flights will operate as usual.
BA cancellations for Monday:
The following services will switch from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5:
16.40 Las Vegas
21.40 Cape Town
This cancellation list looks a little light, to be honest – Heathrow has asked for 85+ daily cancellations so BA’s share would be 40+. Let’s see.
A decision on whether to run the A350 inaugural flight tomorrow afternoon will be taken in the morning.
