BA Aircraft Diverts To CWL

A passenger jet carrying 46 passengers and four crew has made an emergency landing at Cardiff after developing a problem with one of its engines.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/4626296.stm

It was a British Airways, ERJ-145 operating the BRS-CDG route, however diverted to CWL.

There have been quite a few problems at BA lately. A few weeks ago, a 747 flying LHR-JFK diverted to CWL.

Correction: CDG to BRS (BA 4089).
Diverted to CWL due to greater runway length ?

Sorry, CDG-BRS. British Airways has a Maintanence base here at CWL, that services all types of BA aircraft. There is of course the issue with the extra runway length. There might have been better weather conditions at CWL rather than BRS also. In an emergency procedure, I guess the crew would want the best possible weather conditions to land in.

According to METAR's, BRS low cloud and broken fog this evenng, CWL hasn't had it quite so bad.

That's not correct. It's a heavy maintenance base for 747/777

Whether there are engineers licensed to carry out maintenance on other aircraft I don't know - I suspect not.

You don't see A320/321 / 737 / 767 / 757 there on maintenance

Emb145 neither...

I have seen the A320 there on service many a time.

The BA Cardiff Heavy maintenance base ONLY services B777 and B747.
If you have seen A320 at CWL, they were not at the base.
The Emb 145 are operated by BA Cityexpress, another organisation.

Training for new flightdeck crew is often done at CWL or PIK. A320s may be seen doing circuits at CWL but they are certainly not there for maintenance.

That must be why I have seen the A320's there.

Not an attack mate, just trying to explain the reason for the A320s at CWL.  Smile
