British Airways Won't Sell Plane Tickets Out of London's Heathrow Airport for Two Weeks

British Airways extends suspension of sales for short-haul flights out of London hub due to worker shortage.

British Airways is cancelling ticket sales at London Heathrow airport for one more week because neither the airline nor airport have enough employees to handle the rush of travelers this summer. British Airways airplane tickets for short-haul flights out of Heathrow will now be unavailable through August 15, according to Bloomberg.

That’s one week later than the previously announced suspension, which was supposed to run through August 8. British Airways said it would stop selling tickets yesterday, on August 1, but the airline claimed sales would resume within the week. Now that the carrier had 24 hours to reconsider, it believes one week isn’t enough time to deal with the backlog, and is extending the short-haul suspension to two weeks to “maximize rebooking options for existing customers, given the restrictions imposed on us.”
