I tried yesterday to take as flight operated by G-BUSE - the last A320-100 series in the BA fleet which is expected to be retired and flown to Goodyear for parting out very shortly. Unfortunately, my flight from AUH was late into LGW and check-in for the BA1332 LHR-NCL had just closed by the time I made it to LHR T1.
I still have a spare set of BA ZED (staff standby) tickets for NCL-LHR-NCL and would be interested to know whether G-BUSE is scheduled to operate any NCL rotations in the next few days. I recieved some great information from Tristarsteve and a BA First Officer regarding the schedule for yesterday for which I was most grateful.
If anyone can give me any info regarding G-BUSE's flights for the next few days (and chances of getting on) I would be extremely grateful.
