Sorry if this has already been posted.

Has anyone had flight notifications for cancelled flights? We were a bit sad to get the notifications for our flights to SA back in mid-July and today it's for QF64 to come home. Maybe in 2022...

It’s called: Rubbing salt into the wound. 🤭

Are you getting these alerts through a 3rd party app?

Interesting - when my flights (that were booked pre-COVID) have been progressively cancelled throughout this year they have removed themselves from the app. Will let you know next Friday when I was meant to be heading to ZQN for some snow fun!

Yep. In recent weeks I have received a "check in online" message, and yesterday received an Upgrade Bid email for a flight where I've already received the refund for. Qantas, Qatar, and Alitalia. Knife turn.

The flights themselves aren't in my app, I’ve just been sent these two notifications (four actually as reminders were sent as well). I'm pretty sure that I didn't receive notifications for our earlier, and cancelled, Cairns and Perth flights

Yes, I had the continual salt-into-wounds notifications for our July non-trip to South America. Right through to the reminder of Qantas points for booking Uber from Sydney airport on our "arrival" home.

And just received another upgrade email from Alitalia and a notification from Qantas that it is time to check in for flight to Adelaide from Rome. At least they will stop once I arrive home 😉

I was due to fly to the USA with Singair in October. They cancelled the return part of the trip yesterday. Not quite the sequence I expected.

So much for my plans of seeing all of the Space Shuttles, and the XB-70.

I also received the notifications from the Qantas app to check in for flights to and from SCL. Just when you think you are getting over the loss of travel, these little reminders pop up :mad:

Whilst a cancelled flight is no longer visible to you either in the app or the QF website, the booking continues to exist in the QF system, with all its history of payment and refunds etc.
 
Vinomofo is the best wine deals site on the planet. Good wines, real people and epic deals, without all the bowties and bs.

I just received an alert from the QF app that check-in is open for my JQ flight tomorrow, but:
- you can't check-in for a JQ flight using the QF app
- JQ check-in opens 48 hours before departure not 24 hours in any case
Hoping there won't be a flight cancellation...
