    As readers will be aware by now one of Dubai’s main runways will be closed in Spring 2019.

    Although not yet officially confirmed by BA, during that time Airlineroute reports that BA will be operating its A380 on the route from London.

    Flight frequency will be halved to one daily flight between April 16 and May 4.

    Details are:

    BA107 LHR-DXB 1255-2305
    BA106 DXB-LHR 0130-0615

    Flight frequency will be halved to one daily flight between April 16 and May 4.

    I don’t think this is the case, what BA are doing is amalgamating two flights and leaving one untouched, so they go from 3 rotations per day down to 2, for this period.

    This is the usual three pairs of flt numbers

    BA107/106 – leaves am, returns in the wee hours
    BA109/108 – leaves late evening (2125 in early April), returns 0920 in early April
    BA105/104 – leaves late evening (2225 in early April), returns 1315 in early April

    During the period they are offering

    BA107/106 – out am, back wee hours
    BA105/104 – out late evening, back at 1315

    Caveat, I have not looked at every single date, just a selection of befores and afters.
