British Airways Advises of Olympic Traffic & Reservations...

Please read below for a message which we have received from British Airways...

Agents - Please note that for any BA bookings, where travel falls between 16JUL-29AUG, we will not be able to hold space more than 72 hours due to the anticipated increase in Olympic travelers. Please advise all clients that if they are holding reservations during these dates, they need to proceed with ticketing or reservations could possibly auto-cancel.
