    Hi,

    A bit of newbie advice please.

    BA208 from Miami seems to have been cancelled next year, I was book on this flight during next Easter, also flying into Miami. I’ve seen it mentioned that as it has been cancelled I could change the flight to depart from MCO or TPA, both preferable to Miami but booked due to price. Do BA allow the whole itinerary to change or just the affected flight? I assumed just the affected flight but manage my booking seems to give options to change both. I have not yet accepted the new itinerary.

    Thanks
    Steve

    This has been raised in a separate thread today which suggests BA is being relatively flexible in changing airports within Florida. In principle, the cancellation of one flight doesn’t give you the right to change the other except in specific circumstances such as same day returns, but if you want to change and BA gives you that option, you are in luck.

    IIRC BA will allow an airport change within 300 miles but only on the cancelled flight itself now

    You could easily do a car hire out of Miami and into Orlando though you’d be using out of LHR and into LGW so may not work out to be very convenient depending on your arrangement this side

    In terms of what MMB offers it’s often known to be a bit more flexible than the call centre but I don’t think you could do the airport change online though, only switching Miami flights

    *edit* just read that other thread link which covers all this 😂
