The 787 returns to square one after hours of flying

A British Airways Boeing 787-9 made a nearly nine-hour flight from London Heathrow Airport to London Heathrow Airport on Monday.

Flight BA195 usually departs from Heathrow Airport to Houston International Airport. The flight takes more than nine hours, but by then passengers will have traveled a significant distance and landed thousands of kilometers away. Monday’s flight was a bit quiet Anders. The Boeing 787, registered G-ZBKN, took off from Heathrow Airport with a half-hour delay. After 4.5 hours of flying, the machine turned around before mainland Canada and landed back in England in the evening.

One of the engines of the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 plane reportedly experienced a problem en route. Although in principle it was possible for the 787 to continue flying, it was decided to return to London. The decision was likely made based on the fact that British Airways does not have a maintenance base in Houston.


Longer flights that end unplanned at the departure airport are more common. One of the most notable flights was on an Emirates Airbus A380. The giant plane had to turn around because landing at Auckland Airport was temporarily not possible. Due to a severe storm, the station was largely flooded and was unable to operate any flights. The flight from Dubai to Dubai ultimately took 13.5 hours.
