Reply To: BA Passengers Stuck Overnight At VCE Airport

As far as I am aware, the LHR overnight episode, a knock on from the LHR-OSL emergency, hasn’t been reported in the press thus far. Maybe as those impacted are now out of the country.

It was a topic at a dinner party from a BA insider. Some passengers did want to leave, however apparently there were no immigration to handle them, nor baggage handlers to out-sort the items, nor other ground staff. I understand the crew stayed on-board until relieved the following morning.

As I noted on another thread, one wonders when does it become unlawful restraint or false imprisonment?
