Another day brings dozens of canceled flights for British travellers. Passengers trying to board their Easter holiday flights are experiencing widespread flight cancellations, at airports across the UK.
British Airways and easyJet already have more than 100 services between them – mainly from their biggest hubs, London Heathrow and London Gatwick.
BA said most passengers had been told of flight cancellations a week or two.
Airlines blame staff shortages due to illness as the cause of their problems.
Here are the canceled flights until today at BA’s Heathrow and at easyJet’s Gatwick.
British Airways has operated at least 76 domestic, European and Mediterranean flights to and from Heathrow so far on Good Friday.
