This can not be correct? I thought that only two US airlines ever served LHR at the same time. In '72 that would have be PA & TW Am I missing something? Is this an Interchange with PA?

In the other thread somebody said NA never served LHR, but they were wrong. National started MIA-LHR with DC-8s around 1969.

Can someone clarify this? I am sure that this must be an Interchange with Pan Am?

National was grandfathered in pre Bermuda II in 1977- they ironically enough are the only US airline that served London and NEVER flew to Gatwick. Miami-London Heathrow began in 1970 and ran until the PA merger in 1980.

I should mention NA was the only airline grandfathered into Bermuda II- only 3 US carriers served London in 1977. So after the PA/NA merger, LHR was restricted solely to PA, TW and their corporate succesors which are now UA and AA.

DTW:

FYI - there was a long thread about National Airlines' service to Europe last month you might find interesting:

Perhaps you are thinking of Delta's interchange with PA. DA 747s and PA 747s would fly ATL-IAD-LHR. The interchange went from the late 60s-77.
