BREAKING NEWS is that British Airways says it has complied with a BAA directive to cancel 20% of its flights today (Monday 14 August) at Heathrow. The instruction, which applies to all airlines operating at the airport, is a result of continuing congestion following last week”s security problems. BA anticipates that it will operate a full European and long haul schedule from Gatwick. However all 26 domestic flights departing today, excluding those to Jersey, are cancelled. On Sunday CEO Willie Walsh issued a statement in which he strongly criticised the BAA Heathrow performance. Ryanair was also in the blaming mood the Irish airline complaining that the UK government has been heavy handed. easyJet (on Sunday evening) said that they planned to operate a full schedule today. British Airways web site states the flight situation but the two budget carriers seem to be less forthcoming with news. The BAA site sets out very clearly the restrictions regarding what you can or cannot carry on board.
