SQ319 LHR-GYD-SIN (Dep LHR 9 Jan)

Tue Jan 10, 2006 1:05 pm

Seems like SQ 319 LHR-SIN is making a technical stop in Baku, Azerbaijan. Most, if not all, of the other LHR flights coming in to Singapore by QF and BA are also experiencing an hour's delay into SIN.

Funny how SQ 319 is stopping in GYD (formerly BAK) to pick up fuel, and not FRA as originally planned.

Any thoughts?

Woah, the flight's updated schedule now also takes it into BKK, so:

LHR-GYD-BKK-SIN

ETA in SIN now at 2350 hrs, original STA 1455 hrs.

Cheaper gas ? Why would there need to be a tech stop east bound? Even if there is an extra hour holding at SIN this is still less than the west bound flight time which, presumably they do without a tech stop.  confused

The recent explosion of a fuel depot in London is limiting the amount of fuel being channelled to Heathrow. Normally no stop is needed but SQ 319 is the only SQ flight being affected by the fuel shortage.

Wouldn't you have just loved to be on THAT flight?

I just came across a local newspaper report... for everyone's information this flight made an unscheduled stop at Baku due to a medical emergency.
