Dear Aviation Friends,

With the end of March 2008 coming upon us soon, and the opening of Heathrow to more carriers, can we please have an update as to which airlines are moving to LHR from LGW and which airlines will begin service to the UK with the Open Skies?

I know USAirways is moving from LGW to LHR and I believe CO is moving to LHR too, but who else is confirmed to move and which terminals will they be using? Also, any new routes to London from LHR with Open Skies?

Cheers,
BP1

Northwest will have service from SEA(new), MSP and DTW(will retain daily LGW flight), Delta will have JFK and ATL service, both in T4.

None of them are switching to LHR, in as much as they are all opening LHR as an addition to their LGW flying. US, DL, CO and NW are keeping LGW and opening LHR as their primary London destination (judged by the aircraft being sent to continue LGW).

Does this mean the present day flight that goes via ORD will become just LHR-ORD? Or will the tag-on be maintained?

Or, option 3, has the second leg already been eliminated?

The IAH tag now operates via DTW and not ORD, it has in the past also operated via IAD. The whole routing LHR-DTW-IAH is being dropped in March 2008.
