Where is British Airways currently flying to in the UK and Europe?

British Airways has been tweaking its short haul network now that there is a little more clarity about which countries do not need a 14-day quarantine when you return to the UK.

RoutesOnline has just published this week’s schedule.  In the last two weeks, British Airways has added an additional 19 destinations on my count, taking it to a total of 101.  Whilst this is getting close to the pre-pandemic level, the number of flights per week to each city is still a fraction of what it was.

    Help, I need to cancel my LHR-PMI due to the obvious situation I do not want to fly.
    I booked Club RFS+cash, I want all Avios and cash back. I can not find the article that was describing all you agree with me this is better that a voucher?

    I have till tomorrow at 6 to cancel. not much time left, I assume that for avios tickets still 24hrs are the deadline. Also, flights are going but this should fall under coronavirus booking confidence, right? thank you

    • Gumshoe says:

      If the flight’s still operating, you can either call to cancel for a full refund of Avios and taxes/fees minus the cancellation fee, or you can cancel for a future travel voucher with no fee which you can do online.

      • Idrive says:

        Thank you! Is the travel voucher valid for any destination? How do they calculate the value?
        I mean I would end up using it but in that case, that would mean a new cash (not RFS/award seating availability) ticket, right?

        I just want tonmake sure i am not wasting 000s avios like that:)

        Thank you!
