On the 20th of May, the door to the flight deck of a British Airways Airbus A319 was jolted open upon touchdown at the carrier’s base at London Heathrow Airport. This footage was captured by YouTuber Heathrow Aviation.
When Heathrow Aviation spoke with the First Officer after the flight, the reason for the door opening was that it was “not properly locked.” The incident occurred onboard British Airways flight BA731 from Geneva.
The aircraft operating the flight on the day was 16 year old Airbus A319-131 G-EUOH (MSN 1604), fitted with 2x International Aero Engines IAE V2522-A5 turbofans and configured in a CY143 cabin with a 3-3 layout.
British Airways flight BA731 is a scheduled commercial flight from Geneva International Airport (GVA/LSGG) to London Heathrow International (LHR/EGLL), with a scheduled flight time of 1 hour and 35 minutes.
