And if your interested, TK002 JFK-IST A340/TCJDK 01NOV diverted into LHR while enroute arriving 06:00/02NOV and airborne around 07:20. This was also a medical emergency, as the pax had chest pains and breathing difficulty's. Just for your info, there was a group of Turkish Doctors on board returning from a conference in the US somewhere and I guess between them and the Captain they decided that a divert into LHR would be the best option.

To my understanding it was BA206. They had a bad air supply and wanted to make sure no one was sick. They landed on 27L and had the runway shut down for a bit, cause they sat out there.
