Waiting for our flightfrom Accra to London in a couple of hours. I realised that BA has brought forward the London departure time by around an hour, compared to how it has been for the last 4 years, at least. So now it has a 4 hour turnround in Accra, rather than the 3 hous that was previously the case.
I’d be interested if anyone can shed light on the rationale for this, if any, as it would seem that it is simply a dead hour. Unless maybe there is an impact on staff rosters or something?
When I was crew, we used to do LGW-MLA and had a 4-hour turnaround in MLA. As long as the crew are within flight limitation hours, then I suspect this is due to some slot shifting at LHR.
That sounds like a long shift for the crew though.
The Accra=London flight still departs at the same time and gets into LHR shortly after 6am. It is the LHR_Accra flight which now departs an hour earlier. I can see why that means that the Accra flight cannot leave any earlier than it does, but it doesnrt explain why the outward leg departure time has been changed.
