BA BKK-GLA direct!

... sort of!

Just looked out my window and saw a larger-than-usual BA plane on final approach into GLA. Seems it was a 777, G-YMMU, operating a cargo route from BKK-GLA!

Well I found it an interesting little moment anyway!

A PPE run possibly? There was another BA 777 a few days ago in to GLA apparently

This was the 6th BA cargo flight to GLA since the end of October. There have been 5 from KUL.

Cargo. Most likely PPE. There's also been a couple of KUL flights in recent weeks. They might have taken over from Volga Dnepr, which used to have 747 freighters into PIK delivering PPE
