Like other airlines around the world, we continue to carry out detailed precautionary inspections on Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines on some of our Boeing 787-9 aircraft to ensure we meet all the relevant regulatory safety requirements.
To facilitate the additional engine inspections and any associated maintenance we have had to make some minor adjustments to our long haul flight schedules this summer.
To ensure we operate as many flights for customers as possible we have leased in additional long haul aircraft from Air Belgium.
If your long haul flight this summer is due to be operated by Air Belgium on behalf of British Airways we recognise that you may not wish to travel as a result. If you wish to discuss the range of options available please contáctenos or your travel agent if you made your booking through them.
If you wish to fly on the Air Belgium aircraft on the date and time you had originally planned please be aware that there may be some differences in the style and types of services on offer.
In particular Air Belgium offers two long haul cabins (business class and economy class) rather than the four long haul cabins offered by British Airways.
If you have been moved from your original cabin then you have a number of options available to you. Please contact us or your travel agent to discuss these further.
