Default Air lock in fuel pipe


I have had a V70 2009 2.0 Diesel since November 2016 and had the same problem at 6 month intervals with no hint of a problem between. Car starts and runs great

Came to start the car after being parked overnight ( once in the garage and once on the drive)
Called out home start breakdown and they could not solve the problem of no fuel getting to the injectors.

The car was taken to my local garage who bled the system by pressurising all the way to injectors and car stated immediately on first turn of key.
Car is fine now as this happen yesterday for the second time. Local garage checked everything they could and says its a complete mystery.

I should be very grateful for any comments as I don't want this happening when I have to take my wife and daughter to the airport at 6am for their holiday flight in November.
