LONDON (Reuters) - The crew of a British Airways flight from Bangkok to London requested a priority landing as the plane approached Heathrow airport on Tuesday due to an unwell passenger, the airline said.

The plane, a Boeing 777-236, landed shortly afterwards.

"That's now landed safely," a BA spokeswoman said.
