1. and 3. BA is liable to pay the reasonable costs of your hotel and food until they fly you home whatever the reason for the cancellation. They give a guide of £200/night but that’s per person in theory. Just be sensible and book something comparable to where you were staying or go back there if it was a hotel. This is on a pay now claim later basis. Obviously keep every receipt.

4. If you are downgraded you will be entitled to downgrade reimbursement, probably at 50% for that length of route – if over 1,500km.

5. No guarantees but BA is supposed to seat families no more than one row apart. They may use club middle seats if trying to get a lot of people home.

6. Re compensation, if the fuel issue relates to a problem at the airport rather than the aircraft as suggested by the fact other flights are affected, no delay or cancellation compensation will be due.
