BA B747@ CPT, AF B747 @ Run

Do these aircraft stay at the airport during the day before returning to LHR or CDG/PAR or are they utilised on other flights from CPT or RUN?

The BA jet (now a 777) stays on CPT tarmac till the evening flight back to London.

BA do explore possibilities of maximising use layover time-but BA has its own franchise airline running flights around Southern Africa already, so not much they can do really.

As AF got an average of 2 flights per day one leaving ORY in the morning and arriving late in the evening in at RUN, this aircraft leave 2 hours later. The flight leaving late in the afternoon, arrives early in the morning and leaves soon after for a day flight to ORY.

This shows a few hours gap between flights

Fri 22-Nov
21:00 Depart Paris (ORY)
Arrive Saint-Denis (RUN) 11:05 +1 day 11hr 5mn
Air France 3840 Nonstop flight

Sat 23-Nov
22:00 Depart Saint-Denis (RUN)
Arrive Paris (ORY) 06:25 +1 day
11hr 25mn
Air France 3839 Nonstop flight

So the ORY flight spends a bit of time on the tarmac at RUN!
