Due to budget cuts by our government, our local airport is on the list to have its control tower closed. The budget cuts are due to take effect on March 27th. On April 15th, my husband and I have tickets on British Airways to fly from here to Chicago and then Heathrow and then Amsterdam. I'm a little concerned that by then, our small airport will be closed or will operate on a severely limited schedule.
I called British Airways and the agent checked to see if there was a policy regarding this situation. As of the moment, there is nothing in place. However, the agent told me that British Airways would have something in the future.
I'm hoping that the budget situation will be quickly resolved but, just in case it isn't, does anyone know of a precedent for this situation? Do you think British Airways will automatically re-book us out of another airport?
