Excel Airwys Flight Delay

Tue Jun 20, 2006 8:40 pm

Anyone help me out.....

I'm trying to find out why Excel Airways flight XLA2015V (Gatwich to Palma) was delayed on 10 June 2006.

It suffered a 25 hour (!!!!) delay.

Any ideas anyone.


It's nice to fly with friends

Surprised this hasn't kicked off as much fuss as per the usual.

I have to say Ive noticed a significant improvement in their on-time performance lately, so there must have been a damn good reason for this delay!

Anyone know what it is?

Well I know for the past 2 weeks their 852/3 LGW-MAN-BGI flight has been bang on time. In fact it was FCA who had a major delay on their BGI flight last Friday. The real test is on Friday though, when I'm on the BGI-MAN flight - the thing that concerns me is that they only have an hour scheduled for the turnaround in BGI, to turn around a 3-class 767!!!
