He added that 346,000 bookings were cancelled by customers in return for a voucher.

“I believe this demonstrates the excellent work being done by the team at British Airways to respond to the needs of our customers,” Walsh wrote.

Walsh also said BA is to continue with restructuring plans that could mean up to 12,000 job losses, despite the extension of the UK’s furlough scheme.
