British Airways is cancelling its daily flights between London Gatwick and New York JFK airport due to industrial action by cabin crew at London Heathrow.

The affected flight numbers are BA2273 and BA2272.

These flights are currently cancelled through to Tuesday 15 August 2017.

The reason for the cancellation is that whilst there is no industrial action at Gatwick, BA is using Gatwick based crews to cover some London Heathrow flights.

Given that the industrial action is due to run through until Wednesday 30 August, and may well be extended beyond this date, there could be further cancellations.

If your flight is cancelled you will have the option of rebooking on one of BA’s eight daily flights to New York JFK from London Heathrow Terminal 5.

If you have a connection on to an American Airlines domestic flight from New York JFK under the same booking it’s also worth exploring whether you can be rebooked on to an alternative direct service from London Heathrow.

Note that if you are rebooked BA may not meet any additional consequential expenses such as ground transportation to London Heathrow.

If any of the rebooking options offered to you are not satisfactory, you will have the option of a full refund.

Affected passengers should check the status of their booking at ba.com and contact either BA or their travel agent.
