Will the crew need to quarantine for 14 days after landing?

As with a number of other professional figures, airline crews are exempt.

As wouldn't it be self-isolation, not quarantine, if it did apply? (Which it doesn't. And even if it did, they could go to a hotel, and then back to LHR and fly out, before the 14 days were up, i.e. the next day, or even the same day!)

Not seeing any further delay mentioned anywhere else. Did Boeing break it in the paint hanger like Airbus did with XWBD?

Yes, the flight was ‘created’ in the BA systems but has now been removed. I guess the aircraft must’ve failed the flight test (again!). Charleston really not doing a lot to change my mind that it’s the birthplace of second rate aircraft (certainly compared to Everett).

Surely this late in the day BA crews must have already positioned out to CHS?

What a nightmare for BA and a embarrassment for Boeing to have one of your biggest customers there waiting but you can't get your aircraft to work.

Any idea what the technical problem is?

At this stage, nothing would surprise me. Maybe the wing fell off...

The delivery crew position out via ATL on the normal, currently freighter, service. They only head out a couple of days before.

Exactly, so they should have gone out today.

Any idea what the issue is?

I dare say this article which alludes to the reasons why this is now the case can also apply to Boeing’s customer here in the months and years ahead.

I guess it may not be a technical issue...could it be that BA know they just don't need it at the moment plus there's not a lot of space at LHR at the mo...
