According to the BAA live departures service, BA 6914 LHR-TNG-CMN & BA 6984 LHR-AGP have departed. So lets hope that everything gets back to normal, even though it is going to take a long time.

With Regards,

I'm travelling on Air Malta to Heathrow on Wednesday, connecting on to a BA flight to Stockholm... I hope that everything will be virtually back to normal by then... and that nothing crops up again until after Saturday... on Saturday, I'll be flying on BA back to Heathrow from Stockholm.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Interesting that no North American flights are included on the initial list of flights due to depart today.

Could this be because many have been re-routed with AA from Terminal 3, meaning there is less urgency on these routes?

it's because no north american flights leave london after 6pm london time. latest is early afternoon, no?

what about flights TO LHR? There should be a whole slate of US flights ready to leave soon...



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

Well...this North American flier dumped his BA ticket for South Africa and is flying KLM tomorrow instead of BA tonight. None of the YYZ flights (although full) are flying. That said BA will potentially get my business Thursday for my return flights. Based on my experience with the baggage nightmare last year, I would have no intention of going near LHR or BA for days. Now I just have to find the address of the BA person to send the invoices for my new flights, staff rearrangements, hotels and other items I have inherited the costs on because of this.


there is economy class, business class, first class...then Concorde..pure class

From a passenger's point of view, I chose to fly via Heathrow and with BA for my onward connection due to the convenience of the particular connection that I found.

The strike has made my travel plan through Heathrow very insecure, unreliable, and a bit stressful already.

This is the third year in a row with August strikes at BA at LHR.

I will make it a point to avoid BA and Heathrow during the month of August from now on. I regret saying this, but this is a bit too much for me.

After the London terror attacks of last month, this is the sort of action that further harms London's economy.

KLM, Amsterdam, here I come  bigthumbsup

I'm curious about the BA flights to Toronto.

We have in upwards of 3 flights a day here.. With flights being cancelled for two days, will we get more flights tomorrow? Or all 747's instead of 777's?



I like British Airways! I'm not sure why, but I do! ;-)

That is not true.....BA experienced no strikes at LHR last year. Yes we did vote to take various forms industrial action, with striking being a last resort, but none of this ever materialised as our dispute with management was settled.

Were there disruptions last year? yes, BA had lots of disruptions caused by a combination of a massive failure of the baggage system, horrible summer storms and the fact that management underestimated the demand, which resulting in insufficient staffing levels, all which led to delays and cancellations.

Trouble is everyone is in the same boat. British Airways will have a full schedule for their aircraft tommorow, like any other day. Unfortunately there wont be spare aircraft sat around to operate extra flights. Similarly, they cant just upgrade 777 flights to 747s, those 747s will have their own flights. There is a huge backlog, and the only way this can be cleared is re-booking pax onto later flights. Pax have two choices, wait for a later BA flight, or re-book on another airline (BA have said they'll foot the bill for this).

The passengers loose out, and BA loose out, estimated cost of all this is apparently £10million +

It's likely to take a few days to get back to operating a normal longhaul schedule - aircraft and crews have been diverted throughout the UK & Europe when no stands became available at LHR yesterday evening.
As for shorthaul, there are a few aircraft that may need re-positioning, but there are plenty of crew available at LHR, (well, cabin crew anyway).

As for putting on extra capacity - that is unlikely as BA does not have the spare aircraft available.

Thankfully common sense prevailed, and a situation which should never have risen appears to have been settled.

As a BA employee, it has saddened me to see so many people's travel plans totally ruined by a small minority of our company. I just hope we can restore the faith of our customers.

Well its not good, but It's better than being stuck at Heathrow for a second night, for which many will still be unforetunately.

Any news on what Sir Rod plans to do about the illegal strikers? Will he take action on them or just blame general aviation as he usually does?
