On the 26th June (YESTERDAY) i travelled from LHR to BCN i was super excited and thought it would be an easy service!
We got onboard a A320 BA (19-20 years old) Everything was well and the takeoff was good, once we were in the sky we were smooth sailing until the pilot told us there was a technical difficulty with the plane which meant we had to return, upon hearing this announcement the plane felt very rocky , We we’re past paris at the point they decided to return back to Heathrow (49 mins into our flight) Once we established on the ILS and AP was turned of the plane was very rocky and kept sooving to the left and right (not turbelance…) We landed safely! Back at Heathrow
After 2 hours we boarded a new Plane ( it was also an a320 (6 YEARS) This plane was much more modern, we took of, and smooth sailed to Barcelona! The journey was very smooth compared to the old plane… (However the landing was hard 😂 ) just thought i’d share this story!
