The BAA spokesperson also stated “we should expect more snow this morning and this afternoon”… but that part was conveniently left out of your selective quote.

I think we will see the decision by BA to cancel this afternoon’s flying programme to have been proleptic, given the heavy settling snow being seen now, and their decision which may have seemed poorly informed by those who don’t know anything about running an airline, will avoid many people being stranded at the airport or en route, and crew being stranded away from home.

klm has cancelled a considerable number of flights today:
