Good for you that you’ve got business class seats on your flight home today.

Regarding the cancellation there is normally no compensation if it really is due to adverse weather conditions. That said I find it odd that BA would cancel a flight 8 hours ahead based on this. Where are you currently?

As Meta says what route are you flying? That would help us advise better.


@Meta
you seem determined to tell me that I offer bad advice. Not really sure what that is about. As we finally concluded yesterday there is no upper limit on the hotel cost other than it be “reasonable, necessary and proportionate” but the point is if you choose to pay around £200 to £300 per room BA is more likely to pay out than they are if you choose to pay £1k per night. In any event much of my advice is now redundant since OP has already accepted the flight back to LGW, albeit now in business class.

@ Meta would you care to anser the compensation question? Please also offer advice on whether BA will pay for a taxi back to LHR to collect the car? I think they will but I defer to your superior knowledge on this.
