It has now emerged that last night's BA 223 was escorted by fighter aircraft and that today's BA 223 was cancelled. It appears that the names of about 12 people on last night's flight (31/12/) matched those on FBI watchlists.

Not quite as routine as BA suggested, but in fairness, they could not give out any more than the minimum information in circumstances like this.
