Air France B744 At LHR?!

Tue Jul 01, 2003 4:35 am

Hi,

Today at just after 6pm GMT I had a great treat in seeing an Air France B744 taking off from Heathrow...something that supprised me as the largest aircraft AF schedules to fly to the United Kingdom is the A321! I assume it was flight AF1871 to Paris CDG which leaves LHR at 6:10 but should be flown by an A320.

So any ideas why she was at Heathrow? Another AF aircraft gone tech, a charter for another airline, or something totally different all together?!

Merci beaucoup!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Perhaps a case of gross over-booking  Laugh out loud

It was AF084 to SFO.Landed at LHR about 2 hours after taking off from CDG and then took off for SFO again at about 1830-1840.F-GISE.
