More than 10,000 passengers hit by flight cancellations across Britain

Jul 09, 2024

London [UK], July 9: More than 10,000 airline passengers suffered flight cancellations across Britain's two busiest airports because of bad weather and air traffic control (ATC) restrictions.
British Airways axed 51 fights due to operate to or from Heathrow on Sunday, and a further 31 on Monday.
Several airlines also cancelled flights at London Gatwick Airport.
The worst affected was easyJet, with 34 flights grounded on Sunday and at least nine on Monday.
Affected passengers are unlikely to be eligible for compensation as the disruption is deemed to be out of airlines' control.
But they are entitled to assistance, which could involve refreshments, overnight accommodation and rebooking with alternative carriers. A British Airways spokesperson said: "Due to air traffic control restrictions and adverse weather, like other airlines we've had to make a small number of alterations to our schedule." (DPA)
