"I'm surprised they even put it on the departures page given that no passengers will be on board"
Sometimes our BY
positioning flights make it onto the terminal screens, particularly arriving ones at LGW
(e.g. BY992F from Luton!). On the other side of the coin all winter @ LGW
our arriving weekly flight from Tenerife North displayed without an origin, causing widespread confusion. Apparently TFN
/ GCXO was not recognised by the computer which translates the flight data onto the arrival screens.
My mum called after I operated one such flight and said "Oh yes, I saw you coming in from nowhere this afternoon".
Who knows how they decide what does and doesn't go on those bloody screens!
I used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...
