Today’s Airfare of the Day goes to British Airways and their business class round trip fares between London and Canada.
British Airways has canceled up to a dozen flights on its London-Abu Dhabi direct service at the start of Ramadan.
The cancellations will be in effect from next week and continue through to the first week of June, mainly because of the problems that the airline is having with the Boeing 787 Dreamliner’s Rolls-Royce engines.
British Airways on Tuesday announced and launched the ability to pay for their seating charges using Avios.
You have to keep in mind that British Airways is one of the few airlines that won’t allow even business class passengers without status to choose their seats for free in advance. Passengers can choose their seats without paying when the online check in opens except those that have purchase basic economy fare.
Should BA Allowed To Wet Lease Non-EEA Registered Aircraft With Crews From Qatar Airways (Again)? Send Your Comments To CAA!
Flight Global was reporting earlier today (access here) that British Airways had filed an application with the CAA to wet lease three Airbus A330 aircraft from Qatar Airways with crews for June 1 – September 30, 2018-period.

This week the Compensation Clinic-piece comes from a Reader Question that we had last month (access here) where British Airways had denied a valid claim under the EC 261/2004 legislation.
Qatar Airways’ Akbar Al Baker was in Wales yesterday to open a new route to Cardiff and seems to have broken news about British Airways possible wet leasing planes from its shareholder that has some excess capacity at the moment due to blockage.
British Airways operates Boeing 787 planes with Rolls-Royce engines that need some emergency maintenance. Qatar Airways provided short-haul planes with crews to BA during the mixed fleet strikes in 2017.
I had one of those mornings last Thursday when things didn’t quite go as planned. I was drinking green tea inside the BA’s Concorde Room at London’s Heathrow airport after arriving in economy from Hong Kong (got one more entry into the CCR before the card expired) and managed to miss my connecting flight to Brussels.
For some reason, I thought that I was flying to Amsterdam that morning and was monitoring the flight that was scheduled to leave from the C gates. Made my way using the train to the C only to realize that my flight was leaving from A1 and the destination was actually Brussels!
