Hi guys and girls,
Some of you know that I was on a UK/Ireland spotting trip together with TurboTrent
and Sabena 690
Yesterday evening we should have had flight BA
. We arrived at the airport by 5pm and, once in the departures lounge, wewere told by a very friendly Harrods salesman that a lot of flights had been cancelled due to a strike. A bit later, a flights got cancelled and we were told to call BA
Reservations on 0800-727 800 (a very busy telephone line...)
After trying for a couple of hours, we finally got put through with somebody from BA
and we were put on BA
392 on saturday morning. Others had more luck and got on BA
388 I think (7h15am flight).
So, we decided to stay at the airport and try to make the best out of it (as did many many others).
At around 4h15, we noticed that many morning flights got cancelled again (including the first BA
, too bad for the pax...). We went up one level to the FCC (Flight Connections) and got in the Q for more than 3 hours.
Fortunately, we got our boarding passes for BA
, and the flight didn't get cancelled, as did many other international T1 flight after 7h30am.
So, I got home by 10h15am London time. Once home, I checked BRU
arrivals, only to find out that again two BA LHR
afternoon flights have been cancelled again. What a mess. If I was still there, I sure would have gone crazy. I hope all stranded pax can get out soon! I know how it's like...
