    Just read this on the BA website:

    Rather disappointed in them as I assumed they'd know that Claire (Pinky166) & I are flying with them to WDW on June 5th... :rolleyes:

    I know it must be a horribly anxious time, but I think that I am right in saying during the previous strikes, BA were able to operate all long haul flights out of Gatwick. Lots of pixie dust to you :wizard::wizard::wizard::wizard:

    Sorry to hear that and hope it works out well for everyone. When the volcano settles we will all feel much better too.

    We've just booked flights with them to Houston in July. A risky strategy, but at £325 including taxes, it was one worth taking. :o

    This was part of a statement issued by BA:
    So fingers crossed for everyone who might be affected by this... :goodvibes

    We are flying with them for the first time in July - we always go virgin. I think the Gatwick flights should be Ok but we are to fly down the evening before from Edinburgh!! Worst comes to the worst as long as the Gatwick flight is going we will get the train down the night before!

    Hope you are OK, just booked some flights for next March and I didn't really even consider BA because of this, not sure what i'd have done if they were a lot cheaper though.
