Re the BA downgauge:

Its way easier to turnaround a NB quickly + less crew.
If the demand IS there, they CAN probably add NB flights more easily than WB (or up gauge to a bigger plane...)
Also I'm pretty sure that BA flights to Cyprus are NB

People flew with them already, so I would venture to say yes.

I see the update on their site saying that they've cancelled through sep 4 ( https://help.virginatlantic.com/gb/en/news/travel-alerts/tel-aviv.html ).  The strange thing is that I have a flight booked in May and its not been canceled, at least its not showing up as canceled when I look at the reservation.

Not strange it takes time to process all the reservations that are affected

That's amazing. How long did it take? I've been working with them/on hold for about 30 minutes so far. I think the fact that we're 8 people is making it a little more complicated. How many are you?

Just rebooked on LY J, a points ticket I originally booked only 2 weeks ago. Was about a 10 minute phone call for 2 passengers.

They rebooked me. But didn't say which class. I'm assuming not J, especially due to the large group. But I'll see when I get the email confirmation within an hour. I'm just happy to be going!
