Excellent. Your Rob saved us a ton of money and did a great job with his BA booking for Anna who is going to China next week. The Project Manager was very impressed.
I would like to say a huge thank you to you all, your persistence and good humour got me through last week, plus the final flight arranged got Patrick from Bodrum in Turkey to Valencia in time for him to attend the Grand Prix!
Medway Travel simplified things – and this saved a lot of money per passenger! They keep a very watchful eye over you. Well done Medway Travel, and thank you.

British Airways Update – London Fog 23 January 2017
Thick fog across parts of Southern England on Monday 23 January is affecting some flights to and from London’s airports this morning. For safety reasons Air Traffic Control is having to allow greater space between landing aircraft and this in turn will result in a reduced number of aircraft being allowed to land each hour.
We are sorry for the disruption and delays which are being caused by the poor weather and will do all we can to minimise the effect it has on our operations.
- Heathrow (LHR) – Flights are subject to delay and BA have cancelled 40 round trips so far
- Gatwick (LGW) – Flights are subject to delay and BA have cancelled 1 round trip so far
- London City (LCY) – Flights are subject to delay and BA have cancelled 1 round trip so far
Travel Alert – Urgent Weather Disruptions
Airlines are warning of disruption to services at airports today, with rain, sleet and snow forecast for London and the South East of England.
British Airways have stated that “As a result of the forecast poor weather we have agreed with Heathrow Airport, National Air Traffic Services (NATS) and other airlines to reduce the afternoon and early evening flight schedules at the airport on Thursday January 12”.
BA also said that “The number of aircraft permitted to land by NATS at the Heathrow Airport from 1500 GMT on Thursday is likely to be significantly reduced as the airport’s ground teams may need to remove snow and ice from the airport’s two runways and multiple taxiways”.
The airline added that “Many aircraft will also have to receive de-icing treatment prior to departure to ensure that they are safe to take off”,
BA is advising passengers not to come to Heathrow “unless you have a confirmed booking on a flight that is operating”.
Passengers on short-haul services have the option of moving their flight to an alternative time / date up to Sunday January 15, if “you are due to travel on a short haul service that is scheduled to depart from or arrive at London Heathrow between 1500 GMT and 2359 GMT on Thursday January 12”.
More information on re-booking options, and what to do if your flights has been cancelled, is available in the Information section at ba.com.
