British Airways Cancels Flights to Zimbabwe

British Airways, the only non-Zimbabwean carrier to still flying to the country, has announced that it will cancel its flights to Harare in October, after flying to the country since the 1930s.  The country is obviously (and sadly) a complete disaster, with inflation at around 8000%, and BA simply couldn't make money flying there.  Travelers needing to go to Zimbabwe will now need to transfer to an Air Zimbabwe flight in Johannesburg or Lusaka, Zambia.  Or fly to Livingstone, Zambia.  (I suppose the details aren't important -- just know that if you were flying from London to Harare, it's time to make other arrangements).
