    Received an email today informing me that our flight has been cancelled for 30th June. Strangely our connecting flight from Edinburgh to London hasn't been cancelled,only London to Las Vegas has. I see an interesting conversation on the phone coming up.

    I had this issue with PAL for my April trip. They canceled the SFO-MNL (San Francisco to Manila) segment but not the MNL-KIX (Manila to Osaka segment). It was all cleared up in a couple of days when the schedules "caught up".

    You flight isn't until 30 June, you still have time, be patient. (I know that doesn't mean much coming from a third party with no "skin in the game")

    Same thing happened to me with one of my flights home from Vegas. I had a flight from LAS to MDW... but cancelled my flight from MDW to BDL. Quick call fixed the issue.

    Hi. If you booked the UK leg at the same time then they will cancel this for you and refund.

    We were booked MAN to LHR to connect LHR to JFK for Easter snd they cancelled the International leg and only canx and refunded the UK leg once I called.

    BA were impossible to get through to on the phone at that time but fortunately was booked first class so had the special FC concierge number who were brilliant

    That's good. I'm going to have to wait 90 days for my refund from Virgin.

    BA have been better than most regarding refunds, I did not have to call - a quick email and my money was refunded the next day. Never been a big lover of BA, but they have really gone up in my estimations.
