The Great Travel Reset Intensifies – 10,000 holidaymakers lives ruined as Heathrow cancels 61 Flights With Zero Notice

Ah well , the sheep can’t say they weren’t warned ..

“Furious holidaymakers continue to face chaos across Britain’s travel hubs today as Heathrow cancelled another 61 flights at the eleventh hour – disrupting 10,000 passengers.

Airlines have been asked not to rebook affected travellers onto alternative flights departing on Monday.

Baggage system failures at Terminal 3 over the weekend resulted in hundreds of bags not being put on to flights.

Affected passengers are not entitled to compensation from airlines as the reason for the cancellation is classified as being outside of their control. The measure caused Virgin Atlantic to cancel two arrivals and one departure today.

A Heathrow spokeswoman said: ‘We are expecting higher passenger numbers in Terminals 3 and 5 today than the airport currently has capacity to serve, and so to maintain a safe operation we have asked some airlines in Terminals 3 and 5 to remove a combined total of 61 flights from the schedule.

‘We apologise for the impact to travel plans and we are working closely with airlines to get affected passengers rebooked on to other flights.

‘While Heathrow is ramping up resource and will have as many security officers this summer as we had pre-pandemic, airspace constraints across Europe and a lack of airline ground-handling staff can pose a risk to the smooth running of operations”
