Does anyone know which airport has the most 777 movements? I know ATL has the most 717 and 767 movements, NRT has the most 747 movements, and I think I have heard that MIA has the most 757 movements. However, I don't remember hearing anything about the most 777 movements. Does anyone know which airport is it?

While LHR and DXB are obviously high, I would think that SIN is probably the highest in movements. Not only does SQ have a very large 777 fleet, but they operate many of them on short routes with high frequency. This results in many movements. While LHR has a lot of 777s, most only visit the airport once in the day.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
I have no idea how LHR compares with other airports for 777 movements. However on a typical weekday this summer there might have been around 144 777 movements at LHR (although this figure will vary on each day of the week). These movements are approximately made up as follows:
AI 4, AA 32, BA 64, BR 2, EK 8, JL 4, KQ 2, KU 4, MS 2, SV 4 and UA 18.
The BA figure might be lower than you might expect but remember that some of their 772s operate from LGW.

I'm betting on SIN too, with SQ being the world's largest 777-operator IIRC and many of them flying many short flights in a day. I'm also assuming that many Asian operators send 777s to SIN too due to high loads (CX, JL, KE)...

You'll find ATL is tops for 717, 757 and 767 in the USA anyway. MIA is probably 2nd for 757s, close with ORD.
In the USA...ORD would be top for 777s.
I'd rather be on the ground wishing I was in the air, than in the air wishing I was on the ground!

Quoting Ordryan28 (Reply 18): me too. I figured they would be up there with UA, AA, BA, KE, AF (sometimes, I've seen it there), LY (sometimes also), PK, and now ANA will being 777 service to ORD...not too bad.

I was at Hatton Cross tube station waiting for a ticket and I counted 4 777s in less than 6 minutes, so I automatically thought LHR would be the 777 capital of the world. However, those people stating SIN make a good point and I tend to side with them now. However, if you want the variety of companies that fly 777 then I'd go with LHR but if you ignore this then I'd go with SIN.

: Did you read the other comments at all? SIN is still below HND. Just because HND has daily 777 service to several cities most people have never heard
