G-XLEC is routing Heathrow-Gatwick-Manila. Some of BA’s A380 maintenance is done in Manila. Don’t know why it’s going to LGW first. Maybe slot issues at LHR? It’s scheduled to depart from LGW quite early tomorrow.

slot issues Manila for maintenance. So would need to leave LHR during night curfew. Hence position Lgw for early dep.
