Faulty curtain delays British Airways flight from Seville to Gatwick

This is the insane reason for the flight’s delay.

While always you often hear about flight delays brought on by adverse weather, a lack of employees, and modifications in the aircraft, it is rarely heard of delays brought on by faulty curtains that don’t close properly.

It has been claimed that a problem with the fabric partition separating business and economy classes caused the British Airways flight from Seville to London to be delayed.

After the flight departed at 2.45 pm Spanish time instead of the scheduled 11.30 am, one unhappy passenger referred to the situation as “ridiculous.” Prior to clarifying that the curtain was to blame, staff initially informed passengers that the delay was caused by the foggy weather.

It was reported that a portion of the rail curtain was loose, creating a possible hazard. One among those impacted was a traveler by the name of William. On Monday, just before 1 o’clock, he tweeted: “Sitting at Seville airport waiting for a delayed flight. Delay-causing factor: There is now a gap between business and European travelers. Really? Additionally, there was zero interaction with BA staff or the airport.

According to BA, a portion of the delay was caused by the plane’s earlier departure from one airport to another due to poor visibility. A spokeswoman said, “We apologized to customers for the delay to their trip, which was caused by the aircraft diverting to a different airport on its previous route due to poor visibility.”
