Heads up LHR spotters! KL1007/1008 on 23DEC will be operated by B777-300ER (PH-BVA is planned at the moment, but this may change at any time..) mainly to get rid of left-behind bags from AMS. Approximately 200 pax are planned on the flight together with almost 1000 bags. I guess now all the Flight Simmers among us can justify flying their 773 on the AMS-LHR-AMS route!

Quoting kl911 (Reply 9): Because of problems in DUB or in AMS?
Can't say for sure, like the LHR flights, most (if not all) of the EI DUB-AMS-DUB flights have been cancelled for the past two days, so it's probably to clear up a backlog of passengers from both DUB-AMS and AMS-DUB

Quoting ChiGB1973 (Reply 6): Are UA, US, CO, DL and/or AA sending larger aircraft?
United did send a B747-400 on their ORD-LHR-ORD run yesterday 21 and today 22 DEC.... instead of the usual B763
Then again only one flight operated on each of these days... normally UA has B763's running 3 x daily between ORD and LHR

Quoting Viscount724 (Reply 23): If that was the case nobody would ever receive their bags after they have gone astray. How would they send them except on a later flight?
True but when the trouble happened with T5 in LHR didn't BA get cargo aircraft to deliver them. I see noting wrong with what they are doing at the moment in order to deliver peoples luggage before Christmas I just thought there was strict laws against that.
25 Viscount724: If memory correct, BA had to use trucks to get bags to passengers as there wasn't room on flights. I think the regulation you are referring to is tha
26 VV701: On many of the shorter long haul routes the elapsed time between departure from LHR and return to LHR is well under 24 hours. For example BA107 LHR-D
27 caleb1: When did UAL start flying LHR-DEN? I ask this because of what I read in reply 20.
