He had been preparing to fly from Cairo in Egypt to Heathrow Airport, but had a heart attack in the crew’s hotel.
The pilot managed to get from his room to the foyer, where colleagues performed CPR on him.
A source told The Sun: “It has rocked BA. It doesn’t bear imagining if he had suffered a heart attack at 30,000ft.”
Airline bosses delayed the scheduled flight the captain was set to fly back to Heathrow airport last week.
