BA85 - LHR - YVR delays
 
BA85 is showing a four delay tonight and a three hours plus delay tomorrow (same aircraft). It was only an hour late in getting in today.

Would some kind soul with EF be able to check the reason?

Many thanks

There is an aircraft change from yesterday to today due to a maintenance issue.

FR24 is showing BA85 leaving tonight at 23:10 (almost 6 hours late) and operated by XLEF. The same aircraft is showing for tomorrow's flight with a similar delay. Is there no backup aircraft?

My thoughts too. Already a 6 hour delay flagged for tonight. How much will that cost in compensation?

I am due to travel on today’s BA209 to MIA. Yesterday’s was operated by G-XLEG and had a 3 hour delay. Today’s also shows a 3 hour delay with the same aircraft. I am already en route to the airport so will see if I have any joy switching to one of the two earlier AA departures.

These A380s seem to have a terrible on time performance at the moment. Are they particularly prone to tech issues?

Indeed they do. And I don't think all 12 are back in service. The YVR service switched from 777 to A380 on the 1st June and it's been very poor since.

I've now had an email from CheckMyTrip to say that the departure for Saturday's BA85 to YVR has been changed from 17:20 to 18:55.

What time gets used for EC/261?

Thanks

Doors being opened at the destination.

Yeah, measured against the original scheduled arrival time as it’s too late to be a schedule change now.

We flew back on BA84 last week, it was over 3 hours late arriving at LHR, BA confirmed my Compo claim today.......still in €!

Thank you.

How for out does it have to be to qualify as a schedule change?

Quite a lot of variables here but you only get delay compensation if you are delayed a minimum of 3 hours against the original scheduled arrival time. So check back here, or the EC261 thread, if it happens.

So how are BA going to 'catch up'? Self-interest here as I am on this flight in 7 days time! Are any more A380s coming out of mothballs?

My comment was a little tongue in cheek, about BA making an argument about it being one as the delays are so regular! CAA advice is the airline should give at least 14 days notice of a schedule change but those aren’t covered by the legislation (as long as its a genuine schedule change and not a cancellation) but by the airline T&Cs about significant changes.

BA would notify you or you’d see it in MMB. But these are delays, pure and simple.

I agree, I have had two flights on A380s on the LHR-BOS route cancelled on me in the last 5 days - Sunday for engine issues and yesterday for electrical issues.
