Thanks for the heads up, I didn't think it would turn up at LHR so early after being delivered to Air New Zealand. A shame the weather tomorrow is not looking too good for London.

It had to be rushed into service due to a medical diversion to HNL within the 77W fleet which left them an aircraft down. It was less than ideal but good for spotters I guess hehe

Unfortunate about the medical diversion of the original 777 due to operate the flight, but an opportunity to see ZK-OKQ is not to be sniffed at   Any one know what time it departs LHR at and what the flight number will be?
