Flights returning to LHR T4 next April?

Just been daydreaming about travelling again next year, and noticed that BA10 in April 2021 is saying it will arrive back at LHR T4 .. despite BA9 leaving from LHR T5.

That seems odd: maybe just a data entry error?

I tried searching for existing threads, but of course "4" is a stop word and "terminal" is rather common :/

Iíve also noticed some terminal errors for next summer.

WAW is scheduled to depart from T3 and return to T5.

I suspect these are likely to be typos.

I hope WAW returns to T3...I miss the CX lounge in the morning. But I wonder if BA return there... I noticed the BEA A320 sitting at Gate 10 looking rather lonely yesterday,

Definitely an error. T4 may not even have reopened come April!

Speaking of errors... I can’t help myself...
The BEA-liveried aircraft is an A319.

Is there any update on the T3 reconstruction? My guess would be not before 2030 but it might be possible when it's currently closed.
However, this T4 thing seems like a glitch.

In a company facing mass redundancy, pay cuts and dumbing down, with an invisible ceo does anyone really expect anyone in BA front line to care/bothered about this sort of thing right now????

What’s that got to do with it? I was merely providing another data point about how poor BA’s IT system is.

It’s not going to get any better either given the reasons you mentioned.

I doubt its the IT - but the input to the IT. Lay-off enough people and then demoralise the rest, then lead what's left with a CEO who reportedly 'leads from the back', then if you worked there would you be bothered?

Last I heard (from an insider) is that the current outlook is that T3 will be closed until December and T4 until next March or April... all subject to change, of course, depending on flight pickup.

Heathrow departures and terminal finder web can be a lot of fun. Once it showed that Shanghai and Bangkok with Chile and Argentina respectively.

The latest rumour is that T4 might become home to a certain orange airline due to complications at Gatwick with handlers.

Orange airline at LHR, does not seem realistic.
That orange airline would prefer LTN, STN, or SOU instead.
