When I was in San Diego the other day, I turned on the TV in the hotel just in time to see the last part of one of Continental's ads, which concluded with "Continental...now serving London's Heathrow Airport"

Did I miss something with the US-UK open skies policy in the past five days I've been gone, or is CO still trying to play their VS codeshare off as their own flights?

Continental codeshares on this route with Virgin Atlantic,
This is a Virgin Atlantic 747 that flies this route.

That's right, an ammendment to Bermuda II allowed code-sharing to begin.

CO cannot operate their own ac to LHR. Only AA and UAL are allowed from US and BA and VS are allowed from UK side.

Thanks Waterwate,

I guess that is why so many airlines remain upset about this issue. Only 2 airlines from each country!?!?! Wow, amazing.

I suppose this is why AA's London (LHR) service is so popular!

Here is AA's LHR schedule:

-3 daily 777 flights from ORD (4 daily in the "peak season)
-1 daily 777 from LAX
-1 daily 777 from MIA
-6 daily from JFK ( on 767-2, 767-3, A-300, 777)
-2 daily BOS on A-300s


Best,
AA@DFW

Please.....Continental does not fly to Heathrow on its own. It code shares with Virgin Atlantic from Newark,
JFK, Boston, Washington DC, and other Virgin gate-
ways. It purchases a block of seats on VS aircraft
and places its CO on the flight. Aircraft, crew, and
all handling is done by Virgin.

At Heathrow Airport, Continental has its desk for
customer service and handling issues next to the
counters for Virgin flights.

The two airlines also code-share on each other's
flights to Gatwick from Newark.

obviously as most people have pointed out already, CO does not serve LHR. As long as AA serves LHR, I am a happy kid!

Adding on the AA@DFW's post AA flies the A300 from EWR-LHR flight 92... and i was curious as to what Blink 182 thinks about BA's international going to LHR and abandoning LGW... and i was told by a reliable source  
that there cant be any DFW-LHR flights for some pact or something like that...



Go big or go home

Bermuda II is the US-UK pact which limits the airports which can have non-stop flights to London's Heathrow.

Wait a minute. About eight months ago, there was an announcement made that DL and CO would each be getting two daily slots at LHR.

CO and DL would have got it except BA had cried foul and the idea was quickly pulled because both BA and VS wanted open skies on both sides of the pond. Since BM will be allowed next year to fly to the US I hope that either CO, TW, or DL will be the one of airlines to serve LHR.
