INV - LHR flights to terminal 8 ????

Hi

I was looking at flights to Doha via LHR from Inverness and I see there is a new INV/LHR flight on BA site dep INV at 16:45 going to terminal 8 ????

anyone know about this 'new' terminal or is it BS ?? opens up good options for me as I go the BSR via Doha monthly but I don't know if it is correct ??

any thoughts would be appreciated

Stuart

Itís been noted in this thread earlier exINV flight retiming issue

seems to just be an error which I imagine will be fixed at some point. I am sure the INV flights will continue to depart from and arrive in to T5.

Discussed in this thread: exINV flight retiming issue

And no, I don't think any of us believe that 3 new terminals will be built at Heathrow in the next few months! Maybe so many people have started flying between INV and the US due to APD discrepancies that AA have decided to launch a direct JFK route from T8?

I like to think that they'd build a Terminal 1 before moving onto Terminal 6.

LHR must confuse a few people who arrive expecting logic in airports.

ORD and SFO have had missing terminals too.

Ah. I don't miss it though!

Is there any long term plan to renumber the terminals, or have a T1?

ARN is similar to LHR in that it also has terminals 2, 3, 4 & 5 but no terminal 1.

And JFK! Missing 3 and 6. It annoys me when terminals aren't numbered sequentially.

And as we're talking T1, why hasn't it been knocked yet? It's been closed nearly four years now!

As someone from ireland originally, I never thought I'd miss T1...but I do. Funny how the past is always a nicer place.

I do not miss T1 Gate 5.
I spent too long in there. Mainly upstairs in the much undersized and under-looed lounge.

Has it been fixed now? I see that in EF, the terminal number is now correct. Yesterday, it seems that it said "NA" for the re-timed flights.
