Reading on FT it seems lots of people have received cancellation emails for 8 September for flights which are not cancelled. Might be a way for BA to get people to cancel/rebook their flights to give BA some room to reaccommodate PAX originally booked on 9-10 September.I have three short intraeuropean BA flights on 8 and 11 September (outside the strike dates), but this morning I received emails from BA saying that my flights were cancelled and I could rebook them. In manage my booking it says that the flights "may be affected" but not cancelled and offers me the opportunity to rebook. On experflyer the flights are not cancelled, although the same flights on 9 and 10 September show "cancelled" in EF.
Should I do anything? I could understand that BA expects problems on the 11 if their aircraft are not positioned at the right airports, but what about the 8?
Anyone else receive a cancellation email even if their flight is before the strike?
I won't do anything as long as the flights don't show as cancelled. For all I know BA might avert the strike at the last minute anyway.
