BA16 Cancelled Today (12/05)?

Thu May 12, 2011 7:42 am

I was on the flight information on SIN website, and it stated BA16 as cancelled. When I go to the SYD website, it doesn't mention the flight.

So, my question is, is the cancellation a one-off for today, or was it a planned cancellation (not canceled, but never meant to fly today in the first place)?

If it is canceled, why? I assume BA would try to get as many SIN-LHR passengers onto BA12 (which isn't great for my sister and brother-in-law who are flying on that flight tonight)

So, am I right to assume that this has been scheduled like this for a while (my sister won't suddenly have lots of passengers join them because their flight was canceled)?

Why, was she expecting more than the one seat she has paid for? I wouldnt worry, any new passengers joining the flight will have their own seat so she wont have to share or anything.

This was planned long ago.
From 29 Apr until 19 May the BA16 B777 rotation is reduced to 3 or 4 a week.
It goes back to daily 20 May.

May is proving to be a slow month. SQ have cancelled Tue/Wed services of one of their 3 daily SIN-SYD flights and CI has goine from 3/weekly to 2/weekly on TPE-BNE-AKL.

May is like November in the northern hemisphere late autumn nobody wants to travel.
Add that in the UK families with teenagers are discouraged from travel and school absence due to exams and you have a massive drop in passengers especially VFR traffic for a few weeks .

Is this a 4-class 777 route, as I noticed that BA sent a 4 class 772 G-YMMG to Newcastle on the BA1334/1335 yesterday (taken from thebasource.com)

BA 1334 has been an A321 last 3 days.

However a B777 is presently en route LGW-GLA because a B734 went tech.
