BA long-haul flights could also be suspended

After British Airways extended the stop on short-haul ticket sales, longer flights could be next on the chopping block.

Sales for transatlantic flights such as to New York and other long-haul routes may also be suspended.

The short-haul ticket sale pause was extended until at least 15 August.

This is because Heathrow imposed a cap of 100,000 passengers per day at the airport.

A BA spokesperson said the airline is not ruling out restricting sales on long-haul routes.

The airline said blocking out ticket sales would be considered on a case-by-case basis and would be ‘dynamically managed ’across its global network.

Guy Hobbs of Which? Travel said: “With further ticket sale suspensions possible, people should consider booking as early as possible to avoid last-minute disappointment and inflated fares. They should also consider alternative airports and airlines where possible.”

“Airports and airlines need to be held to account for the unacceptable disruption travellers are currently experiencing.”

BA’s short-haul ticket sales pause has seen airfares spike by hundreds of pounds on rival airlines.
