Hey I was just checkin a flight that my brother is on and it left GCM early and arrived in NAS no problem. I then see that she then left NAS at 1:23am rather than the shceduled time of 10:25pm!! She isnt suppose to arrive into LHR for another hour and a bit (4:03pm they have her estimated on BA website) compared to her normal arrival time of 12pm.
Just want to know if anybody knows what the delay was caused by??
It seems that BAs 767s have been doin this a lot!! Replacement needed soon i think but will be a while im guessin as there still decidedin on B or A!

Looking at the route its flying on Flight Explorer I would say it went tech
and now is flying a non ETOPS route NAS-LHR.

Just heard that it was caused by the Navigation computer failing and then the pilots had to re-route the flight along the eastern seaboard and then along over greenland and iceland then over scotland and down to LHR. I mean that 767 must have been full to the brim with fuel!! that was a long flight!!!

The flight went without a navigation computer ? The pilots used the stars to guide them or what ?

No the flight left with one of the two FMC's CDU inoperative.
Most of the delay was due to this happening after engine start, the aircraft returned to stand for investigation. The MEL details a lot of checks to do before dispatch with one FMC CDU inop.
