What Happened At LHR?

Mon Oct 31, 2005 9:42 am

According to this photo, 3 Qantas planes were diverted from LHR to Frankfurt. Anyone know what happened? (on a typical day, there is only 1 Qantas 747 in frankfurt).

It might have something to do with the gate gorment and wild cat strikes.

Yup!

While BA ground staff went on strike inbound airlines that would require BA for handling etc would have been stuck landing at LHR.
