It carry straight on or did it take on extra fuel? Aircraft type?

As stated above, it was a 777. And most assuredly, it had to take on a fair bit of fuel to make the remainder of the flight to LHR.

It diverted to Istanbul apparently.

If it is indeed because of a medical emergency, it's been classed as: COMMERCIAL PUBLICITY / PASSENGER CONVENIENCE.

215 passengers were on board.

It landed at 1730 and got to the gate 7 minutes late.

It left the gate at 1845 and took off at 1902.

It arrived in BOM 2 hours 35 minutes late.

Quoting Singapore_Air (Reply 4):
PASSENGER CONVENIENCE.

It would be convenient to an ill passenger, no?  Wink

It was the BA198, which operates BOM-LHR, so presumably it arrived 2 hours 35 minutes late, but at LHR?
