Can someone explain to me what governs the handout of slots to U.S. airlines seeking to fly to LHR? I know why United and American have slots, but do any other U.S. carriers have them as well?

How does it work for British airlines flying to the U.S.? Can they provide service to any U.S. airport from LHR, or are limitations placed on them also?

It is called the Bermuda laws. It just states I think that only two American Airlines can fly to LHR and British Airlines are limited on what cities they can serve from LHR and LGW. Any City can have LGW service but not any city can have LHR service lik DFW or MCO. American got there LHR slots from TWA or Pan Am and UA got them from one of those too I think. Not Sure.

AA and UA required their slots from TWA and Pan Am, but I'm not sure who got what from whom.

"Lose" is not spelled with two o's!!!!

AA got the TWA routes. UA got the Pan Am routes.

Tired of airline bankruptcies....EA/PA/TW and finally DL.

If American can serve Heathrow why do they fly routes from the US into Gatwick like RDU-LGW for example. Is it because TWA never served that routing?

Oh how I miss Midway Airlines. A class act right to then end.
