Many BA228/229 LHR-BWI-LHR seem to be not operating at the moment - no flights on 04/05/06 08/09/10 17 and 24 June - presumably equipment issues - but not noted as 'cancelled'.

It was running 2 hours late due to combined reactionary delays.On the sector coming up to MAN (1402) the aircraft required a double nose wheel change, at this point it was running about 45 mins late due to reactionary delays from
earlier flights. The wheel change delayed the flight a further 47 minutes.

In the meantime I rang the silver line and got her rebooked on a ZRH flight, so all good in terms of getting home.

BA780 LHR-ARN 03JUN cancelled T-22.5
We were moved to SAS on the same day all be it 90 mins earlier. The later BA flight that day was already fully booked. Any idea as to why this happened and if EU261 applies? I'm guessing not as we departed/arrived earlier than originally booked.

And for the CE slayers out there I suggest you check out SAS equivalent to Club/Business some day and you'll realise how good CE is by comparison.

EC261 probably applies, see the main thread. The trigger here is having to leave more than an hour early.

Hello. Flight BA730 (LHR-GVA) on 24 May 2023 was cancelled. Would anybody be able to share the reason and if EU261 applies? Thanks in advance.

Hi folks, apologies, not BA - but please could someone kindly check LH922, FRA-LHR from today please?

EDIT: this can be ignored now, turns out Frankfurt was essentially shut for a while because of bad weather, seemed to be affecting most of Germany apart from Dresden where we were originating! Lots of Brits flying to Zurich to get the last flights back to London...

Does someone have the details about BA450 LHR-PMI 09 Jul

Strange coincidence?

Not as such, every day there are about a dozen shorthaul, short notice, cancellations due to lack of aircraft and / or crew. Though I don't have specific confirmation on these flights, I would be almost certain that this would be the cause here.
