BA115 (LHR-JFK) Returning to LHR?
 
Interesting - A/C gone tech or another smelly toilet situation?

Has landed now it seems. My guess is nothing too serious since it flew back to LHR.

Fumes in the cabin were the reason for the return to Heathrow.

No reported injury or illness, landed safely and pax rebooked. Fumes were reported in the flight deck, but no official confirmation. You are unlikely to be on the same aircraft even if it is back in service, G-YMMP has only been used one other time on that flight in the last couple of months.

As previously mentioned, I expect it wasn't too serious else they wouldn't have flown all the way back again - probably just a slight smell of fumes in the cockpit and so they wouldn't want to risk continuing over the Atlantic.

According to flightaware, the G-YMMP seems to be scheduled to operate LHR-BOS and return today

ATCO2 May 29, 15 4:20 am

To correct the other reports, I was working that flight as it all started happening. According to the crew, the fumes were in the cabin and not cockpit. Both pilots were on oxygen just as a precaution, although came off it when they decided to continue and started climbing again around Cardiff. The situation wasn't resolved before reaching oceanic airspace, so they elected to return, declaring a PAN, and were back on oxygen when they re-entered UK airspace.

Thanx ATCO2, sounds a bit dramatic after all.
But can you, or anyone confirm which exat aircraft it was? I get contradictory results when searching for info.
