Quoting Sketty222 (Thread starter): Well according to opodo travel news it was due to an aircraft bursting its tyres upon landing at 0835 this morning.
Why would it take 3 or 4 hours to report this incident and why would they leave the runway open until this afternoon?

Quote: London City Airport’s runway is re-opening shortly as the earlier damaged aircraft has now been moved. Initially there will be a reduced flow of aircraft so there will be some knock-on delays and cancellations throughout the rest of the day. Passengers should check the status of their flight with their airline, and check in as normal.
London City Airport regrets the disruption caused to passengers today.

Quoting Sketty222 (Reply 6): Well BA8725 is still showing an estimated arrival time of 1338 on ba.com and Ive checked BA's internal flight information system and again it doesnt show a touched down time like it normally does.
Alright, i was viewing flightstats.com which has an actual arrival time of 1:21 PM (Arrived at gate 11 min later than scheduled) for BA8725. Most probably the BA internal system is more accurate .
The CL still did not post an arrival time either, nor a diverted airport.

SEN is the nearest diversionary airport to LCY and is used to dealing with such diversions. And, a summer seasonal JER service aside, SEN has no other regular flights, so it's a good chance for them to show they can deal with a large volume of passengers. And no doubt diversions are regarded as far more important than at say STN
