British Airways has made another tweak to its rebooking rules in order to help people who are impacted by the pilot strike on 9th and 10th September.
If your outbound flight has been cancelled due to the strike, BA is now protecting your inbound ticket. The return would usually be cancelled automatically when the outbound was cancelled.
Assuming you have made your own alternative arrangements for the outbound, you can now turn up at the airport for the return and be accepted for the flight.
With rebooking now mainly complete, British Airways has reopened flights for standard cash sale on 8th, 11th, 12th and 13th September. If you wanted to fly on those dates but saw no availability – or only highly priced flexible tickets – you should check again.
More rebooking options are now available
A substantial number of additional airlines have agreed rebooking deals with British Airways this week. If you changed your flights last weekend, I would recomend taking a look at this list to see who has been added during the week.
A lot of new options are now available and you may want to ring back and try to change your flight again if your original rebooking was not to your liking. Some are restricted (Singapore Airlines is only accepting Economy passengers and will not allow connections beyond Singapore) but most are accepting BA passengers on any route in any class.
