British Airways forced to suspend sale of long-haul flights from London Heathrow

British Airways is poised to pause sales of long-haul flights to destinations such as New York as the airline battles disruption at Heathrow.

British Airways is set to suspend sales of long-haul flights from Heathrow amid the on-going disruption at the UK’s largest airport.

The move would follow the carrier suspending ticket sales for short-haul flights from Heathrow for at least a week in response to a cap on daily passenger numbers.

British Airways has suspended ticket sales for short-haul flights from Heathrow Airport for a further week until 15 August. The suspension will affect BA’s flights to domestic and European destinations.

Thousands of air travellers have been hit by disruption in recent months, including last-minute cancellations, which have been caused largely by staff shortages.

The airline said is could not rule out further disruption by cutting long-haul routes out of Heathrow.
