“BA can do nothing about LHR having just 2 runways and operating at 99% capacity”

I know we had a separate thread about it but BA running half empty A319s to Leeds Bradford 3x a day isn’t exactly helping maximise use of capacity (as an example).

“Passengers can be dispersed from point of origin on other carriers or accommodated”

Except that following the events at LHR there wasn’t enough accomodation this side of Brighton hence Y passengers apparently kept on planes overnight. And with say other airlines having lower frequencies plus their own passengers already booked plus also being delayed the changes of dispersing people that way are remote.There would have been more chance of finding hotels outside of the UK.
