BA9148 LHR-MCO

Tue Oct 25, 2005 3:36 am

Please, can anyone tell me why there is a flight BA9148 (B744)LHR-MCO today? I don't recall seeing this operation before, however i could easily be wrong? has this got something to do with Wilma?

Thanks in advance

There was a 777 with engine trouble at TPA, and they had to take one from texas to get pax out. Since many people probably had to end their vacations early, BA may be adding this 9000 series flight to pick up extra pax, even though at this point, there's no reason to leave. The storm has passed, the weather is great, and MCO didn't get much damage.
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

Careful mentioning the Dreamflight.. people will start screaming about how it's not possible because of Bermuda II  Wink

In all seriousness I'm glad they didn't cancel it out of hand. Just spoke to an old roommate in Orlando and she said they didn't get much damage where they were. Thank goodness.

You're right! I any case as a charter service the annual Dreamflight LHR-MCO flights are outside the scope of Bermuda II, they must have been running since the late 1980s...

I mentioned the Dreamflight in another thread and got my head bitten off.. Glad to be vindicated.  Smile

I moved to Orlando in 1990 and swear it was around then.. first time I actually saw it was when a friend was doing some work for GKTW and ended up on it in 1993.
