BA244 EZE-LHR delays this week

Hello,

Iíve just noticed that BA244 if the 28th June is delayed until 15:30 on the 29th June and BA244 of the 29th June is delayed until 00:30 of the 30th June.

Iím curious to know what has happened to cause two consecutive days of delays?

Thanks

One of the delays has already occurred and the other looks like it is going to occur as the advice to passengers is that check-in will not open until 20:15. Iím therefore curious as to how these delays will disappear?

The aircraft arrived from LHR only 30 minutes late and has a long turnaround, I suspect it may now have a technical fault and I am looking for more information.

It looks like G-YMMF and G-YMMU are both in Buenos Aires at the moment. One will depart at 15:30 (as yesterdayís flight) and the other at 00:30 (as todayís flight). Assuming nothing changes of course.

A bit strange that both are departing late when they both arrived earlier this morning with plenty of time to turnaround and depart at the normal time (or normal +24hrs). Iím sure thereís a perfectly logical reason for it though.

No idea if related but EZE and AEP ATC are on some sort of industrial action at the moment.

my partner was departing Buenos Aires for the US earlier this week and was delayed about an hour on the runway due to ATC strike
