BA2731 TFS - LGW A320 G-GATH Issue?

Tue May 24, 2016 9:16 am

Hi - I have clients delayed on this service from 23 May, BA have dumped passengers in nearly hotels with no explanation as to whats going on !
Any BA insiders have news on this aircraft ?

Thanks.

G–GATH suffered a hydraulic leak and required parts from LGW. Them parts apparently didn't fix the problem and so it is awaiting further parts from MAD.    New ETD of 0800/25.

Dumped is when the airline leaves you stranded at the airport with no info, being sent to a hotel to be comfortable is hardly "dumped"

No.
Part failure.
Can happen on 1st, 2nd or 3rd hand.
Seriously.
