What British Airways long-haul flights are scheduled for May?

If you think that there are no British Airways long-haul flights currently running, think again.  On paper at least, the airline is planning a schedule for May.

Even if you have no intention of travelling – or if the country won’t let you in! – the flights may well operate in order to bring travellers back home.

The list below was published by Routes Online on Saturday morning.  We have checked it and it appears to be accurate.

This list is clearly hugely speculative – although the flights ARE bookable on ba.com

    TLV is also bookable from May 3rd, 1 flight daily.
    Im currently booked on the first flight on May 3rd, wonder what will happen.

    • David D says:

      I don’t know what airline TLV stands for but, IMHO, it should be canceled (if for holiday purposes at any rate) as it will still be during the *confirmed* lockdown for us in the UK.

  2. MarianC says:

    Anything similar for Virgin Atlantic? I have a flight LHR to Miami end of May.

  3. Dominic Barrington says:

    And do we assume these are all with the almost non-existent F&B service as an ongoing thing?

  4. David D says:

    Thanks for your article, Rob. This is a bit surprising on the part of British Airways as, although the flights are not to other hard-hit European countries, they are still to other coronavirus hotspots like New York and other US destinations. I think that international flights, in April and May, with BA anyway, should only be for foreign nationals returning to their own country.

  5. Are the flights to Chicago actually on a 787-9? FlightRadar24 suggests they have been with a 777.
