After passing over Ireland, after almost 2 hours into the flight, the crew decided to turn around and circled West of Ireland to choose the best option.

As cabin crew was dealing with a medical emergency on board, pilots and ATC decided to return to London.

Save on your hotel -

The 22-year Boeing 777 circled at 10,000ft over Cardiff to dump/burn fuel, reducing the aircraft’s weight for a safe landing almost 5 hours after takeoff.

Two British Airways flights suffered technical incidents during the past 48 hours.
