British Airways says it has to cut flights because it can’t handle the surge in demand for summer.
British Airways cancels hundreds more summer flights
British Airways is to cancel hundreds more summer flights as previous schedule cuts aimed at easing disruption proved insufficient.
The airline said in a statement that it has “regrettably” become necessary to further reduce its operations.
Tens of thousands of passengers will be affected by the move to cancel flights at Heathrow and Gatwick.
The Government has introduced a slot amnesty, which enables airlines to temporarily hand back without punishment any take-off and landing slots they do not have the resources to use.
