Hi all,

Todays flight VS 15 from LGW-MCO was meant to depart 1230pm, it departed at 1735.
Anyone know why this was ?

Hi,

The operating aircraft (I believe G-VROM) was late out of scheduled maintainence at LHR. The original crew went out of hours so they swapped them with the crew from the VS001 and flew them all down from LHR on the empty aircraft.

Regards,

SevenHeavy



So long 701, it was nice knowing you.

Yes, as to which ship, per VS FLIFO:

1VSDO15
** VS - VIRGIN ATLANTIC AIRWAYS **
0015/13APR
P LGW/OUT 1721. L/1621.Z DL 02 A/C G-VROM
P LGW/OFF 1734. L/1634.Z A/C G-VROM
P MCO/ETA 2118. L/0118.Z A/C G-VROM

SKED LGW ORIG 1230.
MCO 1640. TERM

I love the VS FLIFO, as they show the registration!! But I don't know their delay codes (that's the DL 02 in front of the A/C in the 1st line)

Hi,

Delay code 02 is a reactionary delay code. I.e. late inbound to LGW (it's previous sector) due to late release from Maintainence. It signifies that there were no factors other than it's late arrival to operate the service which contributed to the delay.
