BA tripple daily FACT to LHR

Unread postby gregdeklerk » Sun Jan 07, 2018 2:18 pm

I was at FACT yesterday evening and noticed that BA was operating a triple daily to LHR with 3 B744.

Standard ops are a double daily in peak season. Was the third due to seasonal demand?

It boggles the mind that SAA could never make this work!!

It should be 2x B747-400’s from Heathrow and 1x B777-200 from Gatwick, unless there was a technical on one of the B747’s from the previous day.

A few extra BA LHR flights this week and again in Feb due to demand...Sat and Mon...so tomorrow again.
Infact today's LGW service had issues and will now only arrive tomorrow morning...which means 4 BA flights at CPT tomorrow
