Thanks to all that I have learned on this forum, I was able to get a full refund from British Airways today for a flight that was cancelled at the end of July.
Lesson learned from this forum: Don’t be in a rush to cancel flights, you will have better options if the airline cancels. My sister and I had cancelled our other reservations weeks ago but knew to wait to see if airline would cancel the flight. Today it did.
Lesson learned from this forum: You are entitled to a full refund if the airline cancels your flight that was to/from the US, but you will need to call to get it. The email notification of the cancellation had an enticing and easy to use feature that took one directly to a screen where it would be oh so easy to sign up for a voucher which appeared to be the only option. Instead I found a contact number and called the airline. I chose a time when I had plenty of time and worked on a jigsaw puzzle for the 20 minutes it took to connect. It took 5 minutes with a very pleasant customer service agent who refunded everything.
It is sad to have cancelled the trip, but thankful my money is refunded.
