HELP!! Flight canceled, what next?
« on: February 08, 2020, 07:04:30 PM »
I was booked PHL-LHR-TLV for tonight (12 hr layover on LHR I planned to get out of the airport). Booked with UR via BA on AA metal. Flight 728 is canceled. What do I do now?

Call AA or BA to rebook?

I am on the phone with AA was just wondering what standard MO is in these cases (rebook direct, on a different airline...)

Direct PHL-TLV?? Very hard to get them to rebook outside of oneworld.

I think @shapsam is making 2 statements.
There are no direct flights from PHL-TLV

Try find the flights which you want them to put you on. If they are one world partners, ask them to put you on those flights by giving them the flight numbers.

Seems like I will probably just cancel and rebook on my own,  figuring out the options. Probably cheaper this way.

Why is it cheaper? You don't pay to be rebooked due to flight cancellation
