If your flight is cancelled by the strike action, there will be various options offered by BA. They include:
- Rebooking on to another BA flight to the same destination within 355 days of the original date of travel.
- Flying on another BA flight to or from the nearest alternative airport.
- Rebooking onto one of 50 or so agreed alternative airlines, subject to availability.
- Cancelling the booking and getting a FULL refund.
BA expects to carry at least 70% of passengers during the action.
