British Airways Gatwick

Tue Nov 26, 2019 7:48 pm

With the recent news coming out that British Airways had a major fume event during their descent into Paphos on October 19 2019, it seems as though British Airways has potentially held their A320s at Gatwick. Currently speaking, there is only one aircraft based at Gatwick (G-GATP) that has departed. The other aircraft (G-GAT.) still haven't flown since yesterday. Any idea what has been happening

G-EUUS and G-EUUT operated both from LGW today (they are based there atm). G-GATP also operated a flight today. Maybe the A320s are staying on the ground because Tuesday is one of the lowest days of the week in terms of passengers. They have reduced flight operations and only operate A319 because an A320 would be too much maybe ?

As for the G-GAT series, I don't think it has something to do with the fume incident as all frames come from different operators.

According to FR24 G-GATU arrived from Algeria today as BAW2547.

There is a huge reduction in flying at LGW at the end of the summer season. It should pick up again at the start of December with all the winter routes. Gatwick still has the summer fleet numbers as I think only one or two have returned to LHR for the winter. Some aircraft don't fly for several days during this time.

ATK is down to do Funchal this morning.

Disgruntled crew deliberate sabotage by putting onion bhajis in the bleed air system?
