747srule, i have been flying LHR-LAX on BA 283 or 269 more than once a year (sometimes 4 times a year) since 1991...and in the last 5 or 6 years, i cannot remember a single time when I was not delayed coming out of LHR. I think its the fact that Heathrow is so congested.
Traveling on VS for the first time on this route this summer, I am expecting to be delayed out of heathrow as well.
Also...there are the odd occasions when I catch BA 283 coming in whilst driving on the freeway. I usually pass the area (105/110 junction) at around 4:30-5:00 and I have seen BA 747s coming in during that time interval several times in the last few months...i think they are scheduled to land around 3:20 (unless they've chagned it).
That said, I like nothing more than seeing those BA 747-400s with the RB211s coming in overhead,,,,simply beautiful.
