British Airways latest statement

Our contingency plans are continuing to work well on Sunday morning around the world.

All longhaul aircraft were able to depart from their overseas airports as planned on Saturday evening and are arriving as normal at Heathrow and Gatwick on Sunday morning with many thousands of customers.

There has been no evidence of industrial action at any overseas airport directed at British Airways flights.

Our planned schedule of departures at Heathrow and Gatwick is also continuing to work well.

We have added additional flights into our schedule at both Heathrow and Gatwick and customers can now book onto these flights.


We continue to operate a full Boeing 777 longhaul programme from the UK to more than 30 destinations around the world and are adding in several extra Boeing 747 flights, due to the numbers of crew reporting for work.

Our charter operators are also continuing to work well and are integrating with our own shorthaul flying schedules at Heathrow and Gatwick.

On Sunday, cabin crew are continuing to report as normal at Gatwick, and Heathrow levels remain above what we need to operate our published schedule.

We continue to offer the fullest support to our cabin crew who want to work as normal.

All of our flights at London City remain unaffected.
