I’ll take anything
To make this slightly easier, would you like a long-haul or short-haul route into London Heathrow today?
As long as you can give me please
We’ve assigned you a gate for a route of our choosing. See you there later, and expect further details to follow in a PM shortly.
Hi I’m in slot 58 (BAVA308) and could I change my flight so it’s LIRF-EGLL in the A320. I found the route in the A319-20-21 on FR24
We’re so excited for our event that’s happening today! In preparation for the event, sign-ups for new slots are now closed and not permitted to ensure the event runs smoothly and as planned.
We will of course still be around to answer any questions or queries in the run-up to what promises to be an amazing event. If you have any queries whatsoever, don’t hesitate to let us know.
All participants should have now received their ‘event-packs’ containing all the information they should need for flying into London Heathrow today. If you are participating and have not received this, then please contact us at your earliest convenience.
And finally, don’t forget to continue to monitor this thread for further updates, information, pictures, and more! We still couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the centenary of British Airways, which formed exactly 100 years ago today.

On the message I was sent my departure time was 1005z, my arrival runway was 27l, and arrival stand was 576 remote. On this page my departure time is 1030z, my arrival runway is 27r, and arrival stand is 596 remote. Which should I follow? Also would it be possible to switch the aircraft from a 772 to a 747? This route is operated by a 747 irl from April to October. Thanks for your help!
Thank you so much for your help @BritishAirwaysVA. Hope to see some IFAE Arivals
What server is this on. I couldn’t seem to find it in the original post
Expert server. :)
ok I will be there
Good morning @snoman, sorry for the confusion! Please follow details from the event pack using the STAR and assigned runway from there. The slight difference in time is due to operational reasons with other traffic inbound at the same time.
Could one of your staff members hop onto the VA account? I dropped an urgent message that needs to be read and replied to as soon as possible.
We will respond to you momentarily.
We are all well and truly on our way, with currently over 40 aircraft inbound to London Heathrow - and that’s only set to increase as the day goes on and we get closer to the planned arrival times into London Heathrow this evening.
