BA 747 at Dublin

Currently at Dublin gate 303 there is a BA 747 boarding as BA615 to london heathrow.
Assume it is to make up for all the cancellations over the last few days to ferry stranded passengers home.
Slightly confusing for those of us on the BA845 from gate 204 which has the exact same departure time (10:30am), looking across the airfield to see a BA 747 headed to the same place

One of the daytime TATL flights ended up in DUB on Sunday evening. I'm going to guess it's the eventual continuation of that.

gosh - I was in Dublin on sunday flying aer lingus to LGW. We had zero problems at all, so very glad I didnt do heathrow instead.

I wonder if anyone is scoring F for an hour long trip on this occasion?

The aircraft had not left Dublin since it landed on Sunday, so I am guessing that a number of F passengers who were on the diverted flight will be in F for the short hop over the irish sea

G-CIVH made a stop into BFS on Sunday 10th which I haven’t seen reported on here. That would have been an unusual sight to see.

Somewhat excited the other day (along with quite a few other passengers) when we arrived at B34 for our LHR-BWI flight and there was a 747 sat at the gate .

Not to be so, diverted down the stairs onto a bus... (and that's not a derogatory term for a 787!)

A colleague was on it. Was not a pleasant experience.
