Half of British Airways flights that were cancelled due to pilots’ strike are now back ON

BRITISH Airways has reinstated nearly half of their flights on September 27 after being forced to cancel them due to the pilot strike.

The pilots called off the strike yesterday afternoon.

British Airways passengers were told their flights had been cancelled last week, with many being forced to pay for new flights or cancel their trips altogether.

The British Airline Pilots' Association (BALPA) who represent BA pilots, called off the September strike in a bid to negotiate with the airline.

The airline has now reinstated nearly half of their flights which were cancelled.

A British Airways spokesperson explained: "We are offering all customers whose flights were cancelled due to next week's planned industrial action, the option to rebook on to a British Airways flight, with a schedule of services to our daily destinations on September 26, 27 and 28 September."

British Airways passengers have been left confused by what this could mean for their cancelled and reinstated flights.

One Twitter user wrote: "My original flight from LHR to PHL was cancelled 27/9 and I was offered a flight on AA instead.

"I tried to find out if my original flight has been reinstated as I want to be put back on that flight but didn’t have much luck."

Lorna added: "Radio silence from @British_Airways re reinstatement of flights on 27 September.

"Have already spent a fortune in rail tickets to get home after flight was cancelled, it would be good to have some clue what's going on.

Another woman accused the airline of "playing with their money" after they had rebooked a new flight already.

Twitter user Rich said: "Needed a flight that day, you cancelled it, booked another flight on EZ for 3x the price. Seriously, you’re awful."

On the British Airways website, it explains how you can return to your previous flight through the customer care number on 0800 727 800.

We explain everything to know if you were affected by the cancelled flights between September 26 and September 28.

My flight was cancelled and I rebooked on an alternative date

Passengers who are flying on a different date in response to their flight being cancelled are advised to call BA to see the options they have available.

One option will be moving onto a similar operating flight on the same day as originally.

Passengers who were given a refund and rebooked with another airline will not be able to get a refund to travel again with British Airways

However, if you are on an alternative flight rebooked by British Airways, such as a partner airline including American Airlines, then you could be put back onto the original flight.

Passengers who were refunded for their cancelled flight will be able to be rebooked onto a similar flight without paying more than the original price they paid.

Approximately 200,000 passengers were affected by the first British Airways pilot strike on September 9 and 10.

All flights were cancelled with passengers told not to go to the airport.

Pilots have warned that they could announce more strikes up until Christmas if negotiations fail.
