Door Sensor Reportedly Prompts British Airways 777 Heathrow Return

A suspected open cargo door was reportedly behind a British Airways Boeing 777’s return to London Heathrow earlier today. Passengers onboard BA277 to Hyderabad in India got a scenic tour of southeast England before landing back where they started this morning. Following a delay on the ground, the flight successfully got on its way with a delay of over four hours.

I’m always interested how this happens. I’m not ground crew but does this get double checked before departure? If anyone can answer I’d appreciate it.

At least people got a nice tour of southeast England. Only @Cign will like this.

Some beautiful scenery. If it wasn’t for the lack of oxygen and air pressure I am sure passengers would have been very happy with the experience haha!

Sure :sweat_smile: They stopped climb at 6000ft so there wouldn’t be an issue.
