I noticed something similar with China Airlines to TPE the other day, who have sadly left LGW for LHR. The board was still displaying the old CI70 flight number at 21.10, presumably this is because CI still hold (vacant) slots at LGW, despite now also having being granted permanent slots at LHR?

BA Euroflyer Gatwick to Grenoble loaded today, winter seasonal twice weekly. (Sat and Sun) from December 3rd.

BA mainline has also removed Heathrow to Orlando from sale next Summer. Looking like up to twice daily during the summer season
from Gatwick as pre-Covid.

Vectisman - is it definitely BA Euroflyer operating the flights, or still (for the time being) British Airways ?

I believe the flights are operated by Euroflyer but under BAs AOC until the Autumn. Similar to Level which operated or still operates under the AOC of Iberia.
The crews are part of Euroflyer except for those (mainly cabin crew) on loan from mainline at the moment.

A third daily Emirates flight to operate for October half term…777

copied from Travel weekly
Emirates will operate a third daily service between Gatwick and Dubai during October half term.

Utilising a wide-body Boeing 777 aircraft, the flight will depart Dubai at 2.40am and arrive in Gatwick at 7.10am. The return flight will depart Gatwick at 9.30am and arrive in Dubai at 7.35pm, local time.

The service will take place daily between October 15 and October 29th
The carrier said the additional frequency will “meet high demand for travel during the school mid-term break and offer customers travelling to/from London greater connectivity”.

It added the service will also “accommodate Emirates passengers affected by the capacity adjustments at London Heathrow”.

The carrier currently operates nine daily flights to London: a twice daily service to Gatwick, six daily flights to Heathrow and one daily service to Stansted.

I also believe Emirates have plans to reinstate the third Daily A380 service to Gatwick earlier than March 1st 2023 as was planned. December 2022 is the date now being mentioned.

Problems at Gatwick this morning? Lots of easyJet cancellations and the Wizz Vienna operated into Luton.

Wizz was a Sarajevo- Luton flight that diverted into Vienna, then onward to Luton.

Gatwick confirmed that 13 arrivals and 13 departures had been cancelled, out of a total of 180 EasyJet flights scheduled for Tuesday.

A spokesperson said: "At 7am, restrictions were put on the number of flights that can arrive into Gatwick due to late-notice staff absence in the airport's control tower. Some flights throughout the day may unfortunately be delayed or cancelled as a result. Gatwick would like to apologise for any inconvenience this will cause to our passengers."

One wonders in such situations why it is just one airline "picked on". Looking at the Gatwick board, the 13 Easyjet were some of their arrivals between 0700 and 0900, and most of their departures just between 0800 and 0900, presumably the returning aircraft. Meanwhile everyone else has operated pretty much to time.

It's the same when issues happen at Heathrow, BA do scads of cancellations, often including dropping the entire domestic operation, while other operators continue to provide their full timetable.

Maybe they have more to lose with the subsequent disruption?
Also, is it fairer to ask BA to cancel say 0.3% of their schedule or Agean to cancel 30%?

It’s also probably due to rage fact that easyjet have several frequencies a day to most of the destinations affected so easier to rebook. BA less so. Also easyjet had most in inbounds early in the morning when ATC Cover owing to sickness was the issue. At the moment tomorrow is looking back to normal.
I agree unfortunate timing for LGW. However still a positive sign for the airport to be back in profit and no capacity caps after August.

With these and other additions and frequency increases announced for Summer 2023 I can see the BA Gatwick long haul fleet returning to its pre-covid strength of
15 based 777 aircraft.

Nice to see for sure. In terms of route development, what services do we think BA could operate from Gatwick in the next few years, either unserved by BA or routes that can successfully coexist alongside services from Heathrow. Also, with the issues Heathrow is experiencing with capacity, could we see more routes operating from Gatwick rather than Heathrow in the interim or permanently?
