Default BA flight Doha to LHR

For those that have taken the BA flight from Doha to LHR, I noticed it stops in Bahrain. Can you stay on the plane or do they make you get off then board again?

Cheers!!

I flew with BA to AD. It then goes to Muscat after that. All Muscat passengers stayed on plane. I assume it will be same with flight to Doha

You stay on the plane, same on the way back to Doha, lands in Bahrain first - which is nice for those of us living in Bahrain.

of course it does grumpy. If your travelling with young kids, the difference between sitting on your backside on the aeroplane for 60/120mins versus the hassle of packing up and manouvering them off the plane and then back onto another one is huge!

I'd have thought you would want to get them off the plane and let them run around. Travel light. Easy.

Having had to transit in Dubai for an hour to get off plane, with kids who need nappies and formula and baby food, two in strollers, up and down escalators through security checks, walk ten miles back in the opposite bloody direction and get on the same bloody plane again all within an hour - give me a BA style stay in the plane stopover any time! sleeping kids can stay sleeping, etc.

yep been there got the tshirt.... sometimes yes you may just want to stretch your legs but surely you can do that on the empty(ish) plane..... if you have a couple of small kids its a pain on your own, trying to get all the stuff, if you need a pushchair, will it be there nope, but i know that some airlines do loan you them.. but thats needs them to be organised.
