11 Jun : BA143 LHR - DEL B788 G-ZBJG returns to LHR

Another diversion back to origin airport currently. Seems to be a bit of a problem lately with the Dreamliners…

Does no-one on this board know the difference between anecdote and data?! This one didn't even get as far as Maastricht - anything other than a return to LHR would be bonkers.

For reference, BA143 is LHR - DELHI, and it is a B787-8, reg G-ZBJG.

The return of this flight to LHR is a fact, and there's been no commentary at all on the reason or the justification.

...two data points in two days does not a trend make.

It looks like they are having another go at BA143 today, with G-ZBKG being prepared at T5B gate 42. Apparently 17:00 hrs departure time. so running over 6 hours late. Then the scheduled BA257 is due out at 18:50.

It looks like it, doesn't it? It was cancelled at 13:47, which would give a bit of a strong inference. It looks like BA293 to IAD is now full, and I strongly suspect some bookings to the VS and United services, neither of which are full.

"The plural of anecdote is data." Attributed to the economist George Stigler (and one of the very rare jokes one can find in textbooks of econometrics).

G-ZBKG was indeed suppose to service BWI, so they robbed BWI to pay DEL!

One must also consideration if this is potentially a combination of Recency Illusion and/or Baader-Meinhof Phenomenom. According to flightaware there are 438 787 flights currently in the air at the moment. And as always, because one flips 6 heads in a row, the odds for the next flip 50/50...
