I'm flying into LHR on Thursday on an AA777-200ER.. biggrin 

I have a window seat on the right side of the plane....

does anyone know what side would be the best side to sit on for getting really good views?

Go for right hand side. Best chance you'll get of views of the city presuming you are landing from the east.....and it doesn't rain  Wink

Quoting Jacobin777 (Thread starter):

Well, that depends whether you want a view of the smelly bog that is called London (maybe right, maybe left depending which way you come from), or Windsor Castle (probably left), or the M4, or... whatever takes your fancy! It all depends which way the wind is blowing or, if not, then which week and time of day as to which runway is in use. You just have to hope that butterfly in Japan flaps its wings at the right time...

I arrive @ 11:15 a.m this Thursday....weather looks good...so I'll take that into consideration also...

I've landed a billion times @ LHR..but this is the first time I've actually thought about it....and my first time on AA...!!

I think I was on the same flight last year (116) when I went to London...i sat on the right side and the approach was to 27R, and here's the view.
