    Maybe you can use your refundable flight to get paid $$$ if your original flight is overbooked.

Hopefully we can find a hotel for the night there. Since we would rather get there earlier, other than the flights to the wrong place, we are paying for all these changes so a back up wouldnít be a big deal. We are definitely losing a day of activities because our travel time has been impacted. We are trying to make the best of it and took the train into London but at this point, we are all so tired and canít wait to actually sleep in a bed. And get to enjoy our planned trip.

    Good Luck! I know families that have traveled without any trouble but I can also attest that itís crazy out here so who knows right now.
    Oh no! Our friends have been having a super hard time getting to Paris via BA. They are currently also stuck in London and BA has been zero help.

    I never would have thought about booking backup flights but I think it's really smart if you can swing it. We have 2 different families in our circle whose flights were cancelled and rescheduled 2-3 days after the original flight. It would have made them miss prepaid all inclusive trips that they could not reschedule due to work. Each family had to spend hours online and on the phone to find alternatives and still arrived a day late for their trips.
