This time BA has released a waiver, and it applies to all BA marketed flights and travel packages, including award bookings for BA flights.
You can make a free change for bookings made between March 3-March 16 for travel anytime within the next year.
If you do make a change, the change fee will be waived, but the difference in fare will still apply.
You can make changes up until the time of departure. It’s great seeing airlines making useful change waivers, unlike BA partner American’s nearly useless waiver that restricts changes to 14 days in advance.
BA also announced temporary reductions in flying between NYC and London due to the downturn in travel demand. It will be interesting to see how they plan on utilizing their valuable space or lose slots at Heathrow Airport. Perhaps they’ll shift to less costly short-haul flying?
Are you more inclined to book travel with an airline offered a change fee waiver policy?
