You would have thought they'd have cancelled this by now and put the pax on other flights, anyone know the reason for the delay?

Ouch, that's awful. I'd have thought you could of hitchhiked to Newcastle in 7 hours!

I'm sorry I don't have any other information to add but clearly this is not a good way for BA to keep its eroding domestic market share.

Wow! You could easily get the train to Paddington, get on the Circle line to Kings Cross and get the train to Newcastle and be there well within 7 hours.

BA are past masters at eroding their own domestic market share, the sale of BA Connect saw to that.

Ouch. I pity anyone on that flight originating in London, when the train can take only 3 1/2 hours.

UK flights inbound to AMS see quite huge delays tonight, on BA, U2, VG, KL. Is there something else happening? Some LGW flights face 2,5 hours delay ex AMS.

Have had some torrential rain in the UK today. Perhaps that's the reason?! Not sure.

I doubt that the flight is actually that delayed unless there was a very good reason for it. I guess the passengers would have come in on other flights and shuffled around.

BA.com right now says:

BA1326 LHR NCL 06 JUL 11:00 06 JUL 18:14 Actual



So unless they want to make themselves look worse than they really are, I would say it actually is that delayed...

What would make me mad is that there was a 17:00 flight that arrive before the 11:00 flight into NCL.

There were thunderstorms around earlier on in the London area. That might be it but I'm not 100% on that.

That's shocking... Wimbledon's second week was last week and that is usually the recipient of torrential and seemingly never-ending rain! Almost a pity they didn't need the new roof on Centre Court a little more often, considering all the years they needed it and didn't have it!

I guess the trains would be delayed too in torrential rain. I doubt they'd be delayed seven hours like the BA flight though!

The weather at LHR was delaying flights by 1-2hrs all afternoon and evening.
But the NCL A321 returned to stand tech. It was full, so could not be substituted by the spare A320, and there was no spare A321 or B757 available. Other flights to NCL were also full so it was unfortunate, the pax had to wait until it was fixed.

Cheers for the info. Thought it was a bit strange that the flight wasn't cancelled

Would have expected those comments... but on a day to day basic, one odd flight could be delayed by several hours: nothing there to speculate about the non commitement of an airline to its network... pfff



Next flights : BRU-ZRH-CAI (LX)/ BRU-FCO-TLV (AZ)

Fact is, this was a domestic flight which BA would normally cancel. Was there some high ranking people on this flight. Hmmm...?
