British Airways drops Heathrow flights a third day

22 December 2006

British Airways Plc canceled about 40 percent of its short-haul flying schedule at London Heathrow airport during a third day of disruption caused by dense fog, stranding thousands of passengers at Europe’s busiest airport.

British Airways, Europe’s third-biggest airline, is operating all long-haul flights, and is using twin-aisle planes to boost capacity on some short-haul routes from Heathrow. The three days of cancellations, including all U.K. domestic flights, will reduce earnings for the carrier this quarter, said Cathy West, a British Airways spokeswoman who declined to specify when an estimate will be released.

    This is no surprise. With my current experiences with BA, they will have a much larger loss. I will NEVER again fly with them and as soon/IF they ever find my luggage, I am cutting all ties. It has been 5 days…and counting and STILL none of my children’s Christmas presents that were in my luggage have been located. Explain that to kids on Christ mas day!!

    Hi Alice,

    Thanks for your comment. It seems that there was a big chaos in Heathrow in the last days. We hope the airport recovers soon.
