Just seen Richard Quest live from EWR about to fly on Continentals 1st ever LHR flight. Passengers are enjoying free Champagne and snacks at the gate . On arrival Richard Quest will interview CO's CEO .
Good luck to Continental and I hope it goes well for them. CO 4 will also arrive a few hours later from IAH.

The pilots were just interviewed live from the gate and they said they were so happy to fly to LHR as ''Its the Jewel in Europe''. They also said ''It is congested but they are used to that at EWR '' . The flight time of tonight's flight will be under 6 hours !!! There is a very strong tail wind all the way and the flight will be smooth. Good news for the passengers.

DL is also starting up service though it must not be selling as I could get a seat from LHR to JFK tomorrow and returning the 12th of April for a low sum of 290.30 pounds. Before taxes it is only 116.60 and that is with less then 24 hours purchase. YIKES.

Regarding the new IAH-LHR service. I flew into IAH this evening just as the Fire Department was spraying BA's 777 first ever departue to Heathrow. I have seen this before for retiring captains, but never to inaugerate new air service. Does anyone have information about this practice?

Quoting Aggieflyboi04 (Reply 18): Looks like most of the flights going to LHR tonight from the us are getting in early. I looked at them and they are all running between 30minutes and over an hour early.
Until they reach the hold and that 1 hour early turns into 15 mins late
