Looking at the video, I suspect the APU was inop, as there are two air starts underneath the deployed slide. At this stage, it’s unknown from the info available , how long the pax were sitting in a cooking 747 without any air.

This thread quickly goes off track with bickering…..
Those guys must’ve demonstrated some good airmanship to put that aircraft down on the drink in the middle of the night.
Very very lucky to get out of an airliner hitting the water at over 100 mph .
Good luck with their recovery’s.
According to the AAIB, the collapse apparently happened while the aircraft was being loaded with cargo. Just a wild guess: Is it possible that the cargo loading could have contributed to the collapse?? https://twitter.com/Train_PlaneHub/status/1405807396132425729?s=20 Correct, Happened while being ...Jump to post
Let’s take a step back here… Has anybody looked back thru the investors day presentations, to see how much LGW network contributes to BA…? BA has been regularly nearing £2bn profit in the good year pre Covid. How much of that came from the LGW op…? Bearing in mind, that iirc £1bn was from the LHR-JF...Jump to post
But they didn’t Use them as required…
They folded before the 3 years were up.
Say one pair of decent LHR slots are roughly $50m in good times.? Do all the LGW routes contribute anywhere near that per annum…? If no…. The answer is simple. Remember, BA are currently in another cost saving measure, by furloughing all non-essential management, and only operating routes that gener...Jump to post
I thought the LGW cabin crew were flying the ex LGW routes out of LHR. Perhaps someone can give a definite answer in this.? No. There’s only about 500 Gatwick Cabin crew left and about 80% of those are still furloughed. The crew that are still operating are doing the remnants of the LGW long haul s...Jump to post
Please don’t use simply flying as a source.
Not a credible source. imho.
Aer Lingus charging 5.99 to carry on bags (or check in for free). If not paid in advance 35 quid at the gate. Applies to Saver fares. Not flown with them in a while but this is new as the app indicates when booking? One stage they removed the free check in option and replaced with 5.00 fee. Glad th...Jump to post
I refer to my earlier post from a month ago.
“God help anybody that trusts this crowd with your money.”
T3 is open for arrivals from Red listed (U.K. Government list) counties, to stop mixing faith Green and Amber arrivals. T3 is in effect closed.. All "RED LIST" pax are bussed from T2 or T5 to be processed through T3. Currently T3 sees several Cargo flights each day, with the remainder of ...Jump to post
Just found this…
I know it’s a couple of days old, but looks like they’ve been stripped of the all slots they had.

In 26 years of Handling in one way or another, all I can remember is that all the main cargo doors on wide body’s open outwards.
All bulk doors on widebodys open inwards.
Exception to this rule is the DC10/MD11.
And for the life of me, can’t remember the bulk door on a L1011 did..
I second the MacArthur Job book.
Fantastically written, and great analysis.
Unfortunately , as soon as the bulkhead blew, that aircraft was only going to go down.
As for more people alive than the 4 that made it, I would assume that would be very possible from all the accounts written on the crash.
Yep…. BD ordered the seat for their ex BMED 321’s. They ordered it after fanfare and good revues from LX . Same stable, all LH owned.
Believe the seats sat in the BD sheds at EMA for a while before fitting during the BA take over. Don’t believe the ex BMED 320’s were ever fired with the seats .
Flown a couple of those in the 2x1 config.
The single seat really is like Captain Kirks chair on the Enterprise.. only better.
As for returning to wide body ops, and CW catering, I would hold your breath..
Flight have been renumbered in to the Euro number range ie BA400/1…. Suggesting A CE product.
I realise that, but pretty sure BE never made it to 3 years with the slots…Jump to post
Found a bit of info, but 8 years old, but this is what I was talking about.
Does it still run..???
Please leave in Civil Aviation. Believe it’s operating Civil Passenger Flights On today’s front page is a glorious shot of a FAA F28-1000C departing AEP just two weeks ago. My question is, does this aircraft still fly semi civilian flights within Argentina.? And are they bookable..? I seem to rememb...Jump to post
Those NW Classic freighters looked outstanding when new in the polished aluminum, terrible later on when the finish was never maintained, wonder if it would have been possible to restore that ‘mirror shine’ ? Absolutely possible, just look at the AA fleet when they came out of a heavy check. Factor...Jump to post

A 747-286BM I would say.
There are plenty of examples that were made with the 2xxBM suffix.
BTW, the earlier two IR 747-286BM’s which have the SCD were never used as a combi. They have always had the full pax configuration. IR never took advantage of their useful order.
