The saga of flight cancellations for the BA233 flight fom London Heathrow to Washington Dulles continues. Despite a "specific and credible threat" reported on Friday, and presumably known about before that, neither the Friday nor the Saturday flight has been cancelled for security reasons.
However the Sunday 1st February and Monday 2nd February flights are due to be cancelled.
How can this really be a "specific and credible threat" ? If this was true, then the earlier flights this week should have been cancelled.
Have these earlier flights been used as bait to lure the alleged terrorist hijackers into a trap, thereby risking the passengers and crew ?
Why has it taken 48 hours or more for the decision to be taken to cancel the Sunday and Monday flights ?
If there is no "specific and credible threat", then what use is it cancelling the Sunday and Monday flights after all this press publicity ?
'Al-Qaeda threat' grounds flights
BA also cancelled several flights in January over security fears
British Airways and Air France have cancelled a number of US flights amid fears al-Qaeda may be targeting them.
Flights BA 223 from London Heathrow to Washington on Sunday and Monday are hit as well as return flights BA 222.
A BA flight to Miami on Sunday was also grounded on security advice, as were four Air France flights."
