BA passengers taken on a nine-hour ‘flight to nowhere’

British Airways passengers endured a nine-hour ‘flight to nowhere’ across the Atlantic due to a minor technical fault.

The Houston bound flight had reached North America but then turned around and returned to London Heathrow.

The Boeing Dreamliner jet had just crossed the Canada-US border when the pilots were alerted to a ‘minor technical issue.’

It didn’t warrant an emergency diversion so the plane returned to the UK.

The flight to nowhere was in the air nine and a half hours, crossing the Atlantic twice.

BA hasn’t disclosed what the technical glitch was.

It landed without incident at London Heathrow.

“The flight returned to London Heathrow as a precaution due to a minor technical issue. It landed safely and customers disembarked as normal,” BA said.

“We’ve apologised to our customers for the disruption to their journey.”
