These rolling cancellations just keep on coming. Earlier this week, I wrote about Turkish Airlines pushing their scheduled start back (canceled one of my flights in the process!) and now we have Austrian Airlines also pushing their schedule out – this time by another two weeks.
Austrian Airlines Cancels Another Two Weeks of Flights
The last cancellation was through May 17 and I thought it may hold there. But, they have now canceled all flights until May 31. I actually had a flight with them that was to have been one week earlier and saw it missing from my itinerary which is how I found out about the new cancellations.
For flights to the US, I would think the best bet for flights that may start up first would be ones to Washington, DC (IAD). New York is still having a lot of problems and is entering a new phase of lockdown until May 15 (with new updates on that date for future action). Flights to DC may figure that this would be one of the first US destinations that Austrian would fly to post schedule resumption. One other option could be Chicago.
