I guess this is because, while being just a little farther away than London, Paris is in a timezone that allows "early" departures to be 1 hour earlier. Maybe the city that would have the best chance in this case would be Lisbon, being 400km closer and still in the same timezone, but I guess the O/D doesn't need an early departure.

Thanks for all your replies everyone...
Looks like (by fluke) I happened to mention the earliest arrival after all onto US soil.
Makes me wonder then what the latest arrival is - latest i have found so far is VS17 LHR -EWR arriving at 23h10 but then I havent taken into account the 3 hour time diff with the West coast so maybe something else beats Virgin 17 !

On a seperate note, does anyone know were one can find out about an airlines future scheduling, for example like knowing when an airline's summer 2011 schedule would be updated? Would hostesses and stewardess know?

Sorry guys, but you're all wrong. The earliest arrivals will be from either DHL, FedEx or UPS, departing and thus arriving way earlier than any of the inferior passenger carrying airlines, in order to be able to make deliveries before noon.

Lisbon is in the same time-zone as London, not Paris... you're right about the O/D, though, no need for anything that early (although depending on their connecting banks at EWR and PHL, CO and US might be able to pull it off).
Read this very carefully, I shall write this only once!

Quoting Rafabozzolla (Reply 11): What about the other way around? Which is the earliest arrival in Europe?
For conventional overnight USA-Europe passenger service, DLH 417 (IAD-FRA) will be the first to land in Europe at about 5:10 local time. For an earlier local time that is actually later, BAW 212 will land at LHR at about 4:50 local time (almost an hour later than DLH 417).
