British Airways has cancelled thousands of flights out of Heathrow Airport owing to a shortage of resources and has now banned selling tickets for any flights out of Heathrow that are less than three hours in duration. The original termination date of dordle August 8th has been moved to August 16th.
Some of the itineraries are on BA's premium services, so the decision may appear odd. The airline does, however, have two good explanations:
Travelers within the UK already face difficulties getting about due to the recent Heathrow Airport closure and the ongoing Gatwick Airport closure, and upcoming rail strikes would only make matters worse. Flights departing from Heathrow on August 16 can already be booked, including those to Athens, Gibraltar, and Naples. It's best to make travel plans as soon as possible after the 16th, as there's no telling if this may be extended again.Show More
