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!

There's also a rumour that Finnair will be sending an A340 to LHR tomorrow (23rd) as well.

Great, is this the 8.30 AM or whatever flight? what are the real times? Is this the first time a B77W of KLM will land at LHR?

Why only 200 pax?

Correct, departing AMS at 7:35 UTC, arriving at 9:00 UTC in LHR if I'm correct..
The 1008 is scheduled to depart LHR at 10:30 UTC, arriving at AMS at 12:00 UTC.

Not sure, perhaps an LHR enthusiast knows this for sure, but I don't think a KL 77W has ever landed there

Quoting alasdair1982 (Reply 4):

Not sure on that either, this is the current booking..it might end up a little higher, you never know. The LHR-AMS leg is filled a bit better, with a booking of approx. 300 passengers.

Because of problems in DUB or in AMS? AMS has been open for two days now right, with all runways available?

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

I am surprised that there is so much slack in the B777 scheduling... Would they normally be sitting unused or has some maintenance work been rescheduled to make them available?

Why is EI flying to LHR from FCO and not to DUB? Or is this to assist BA or AZ?

That is correct. G-ZZZA is inbound for LHR as I type this. Operating BAW9158 from EDI.
Earlier today another BA 777 was operating LHR-AMS!

I remember when we had snow a few years ago and KL sent a 744 here to pick up stranded pax.

UA have been using 744's on the LHR-DEN route yesterday and again today apparently.

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

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.
