Amid ongoing disruptions, cancellations and baggage losses, UK airport authorities are pleading with airlines to limit the number of passengers each day.
BA suspends ticket sales for shorter flights amid Heathrow chaos
British Airways has reportedly suspended selling short-haul flights from Heathrow for at least a week.
Tens of thousands of flights have already been cancelled this summer as the industry struggles to cope with the demand for air travel amid staffing shortages.
The Times reported BA suspended domestic and European services until and including Monday to comply with Heathrow’s cap on passenger numbers, with the airport announcing last month no more than 100,000 daily departing passengers are permitted until September 11.
The company earlier responded to Heathrow’s cap on passenger numbers by announcing it would cancel 10,300 flights until October, with one million passengers affected.
