When does BA1 depart today? - ba.com is confused

In MMB and my ticket, it says that it departs at 1250.

But it also warns in MMB to check the Arrivals and Departures section of ba.com as that will be updated with any changes due to strike action.

When I check Arrivals and Departures (accessible directly from the home page of ba.com) it shows a scheduled departure time of 1230, and an estimated departure time of 1250.

Have BA changed the departure time for some reason or this this some kind of ba.com bug? Does anyone know for sure? I was planning to leave the office a smidgen before 12, but will have to leave earlier if its a 1230 departure.

I've also noticed a difference between the departure time on my bookings and arrivals/departures page at BA.com.

On the BA780, the time difference is always 5 minutes!

This seems to have happened after the change from the old to the new arrivals/departures page at BA.com.

Hopefully, LeisureFirst will see this posting at Shannon

The other half has instructions to report in from Shannon by phone.
The other half is also flying over to attend the same party at the Roseland Ballrom as LeisureFirst on Sat night/Sun morning ........

I was on BA1 Thursday and I heard the passenger in 1J ask the cute passenger in 3K if he was a flyertalker! 3K and 3J were going to the same party at the Roseland and I'll be there too!

So was yesterday's BA1 flight, the Roseland Express or just the Pink Express?

You should have leaned over to say hi.
You might have found out you had mutual friends. 1J and 3J/K did!
