Earlier this summer, BA cancelled dozens of cheap tickets sold to passengers by accident.

"I've not heard anything from them on this and I've just had to cancel the card I used". The airline has actually been working hard and succeeding of late, to reverse numerous recent cuts to in-flight service in an attempt to improve its public image.
