Not many diversions. Just a whole load of cancellations and lots of delays too.

Diversion wise just 3. 1 Luxair and 1 Flybe to SEN and 1 Swiss to BHX.

Visibility at LCY I would imagine. Looks like itís been overcast with a base varying between 200-500 ft most of the day.

Any point turning up on time for e.g. LCY-EDI that's scheduled for 19.10 that's now showing 21:41?

And would they give food vouchers?

Keep an eye on your app - my Dublin flight later tonight went from a 2hr delay to on-time a short time ago so some of the earlier cancellations may allow them to shuffle aircraft and get you away closer to your scheduled departure time.

If you have baggage, unless advised specifically that you can check in late, you would risk being offloaded due to closing baggage acceptance according to the original schedule, even if you have OLCIed. That's besides the advice above regarding the possibility the flight might be brought forward.

Could someone with access to Expertflyer kindly look up the reason given for the cancellation of BA3277 from LCY - DUS today? I'm currently in the South lounge at LHR on waitlist for BA946 (which is showing as very delayed) but the lounge staff won't tell me the reason for the cancellation of my LCY flight 'due to data protection'!!!

I think the reason is WEAN - but am not that use to reading these things I'm afraid.

Is there a specific cancellation or delay code given? I live very close to Canning Town so I'm rather surprised

G-LCYI was the scheduled aircraft which was due in from DUS as the BA3276. Weather at LCY is the issue. The last few hours looked like this:

EGLC 161850Z 10009KT 3000 -DZ BKN003 09/09 Q1026
EGLC 161820Z 10009KT 3000 -DZ BKN003 09/09 Q1026
EGLC 161750Z 09010KT 2800 -DZ BKN003 10/09 Q1026 REDZ
EGLC 161720Z 10009KT 2000 DZ BKN003 OVC006 09/09 Q1026
EGLC 161650Z 08008KT 2200 -DZ BR OVC003 10/09 Q1026
EGLC 161620Z 07008KT 2200 -RA BR OVC003 10/09 Q1025

The ceiling has been solidly at 300ft, the E170 and E190 has a MDA (Minimum Decent Altitude) of 460ft when landing 09, which is higher than the ceiling. The cloud has recently gone from overcast to broken, so there might be a chance to get in now, as there are gaps in the cloud but all depends if the gap is on the approach to the runway!
