Hi Everybody,

My first post at Airliners.net having used the website for many years. Sorry its not that interesting but its on something that has been bugging me over the past few days now...

Despite working just down the M4 from LHR I unfortunately don't get the chance to get down there that often to do some spotting.

Has anyone actually seen DL/CO/US/NW at LHR yet??? I haven't seen any of them in the air and certainly haven't seen any photos posted yet.

Cheers, Rich

I haven't been to LHR for a few days so i haven't see any CO,DL,NW,US action, but they are there and they will be there for some time. Best time to catch the new arrivals is early morning or early afternoon, that's when most of the new flights arrive and depart.

Hi working at Thistle Heathrow today and on arrival saw Delta 763 in old livery take off around 9.45am, also seen Continental 777 taxying around 11ish

No signs of US/NW but the US crew is staying here so it must be around somewhere

Hi there,

Spent the day at LHR yesterday and it was odd seeing all the old LGW machines at LHR.

They have such odd schedules compared to their LGW schedules but I suppose that is the LHR slot problem again. They seem to be very spread out. There was a CO that arrived after midday!!

You do have to pay a bit of attention if you want to catch them as they obviously don't have anywhere near as many flights as AA or UA have at the moment.

It is quite good to be able to see all the US majors at LHR now in some form even though I work at LGW and we have been left a bit in the lurch thanks to Open skies!

As for the pics.....give it chance....its' been less than a week and the great British April weather hasn't been doing much good this week.

Many thanks for your responses so far. I would get down there myself but am unfortunately only able to take the occasional glance out of the window from our offices a few miles to the west of LHR and haven't yet seen one of these new babies either coming in or taking off...

Looking forward to seeing some images soon???!!!

If it was after 1400 it was probably CO32 from IAH, which is scheduled to arrive at 1405. Another odd arrival is CO18 from EWR with scheduled arrival into LHR at 2115. The other CO inbound to LHR are all in the morning.

My best is that I saw N67158 at EWR depart for LHR on the 1st. Cool to see... I honestly never thought in my lifetime I'd see a CO flight taking off for LHR, so it was cool to see from the U.S. end.

Arriving at 2pm from the west/south USA is not that odd. When factoring time zone and flight time it's a 15-16 hour difference between when you leave Houston and arrive London. If you are running 2 flights a day like CO, you'll run an early and late evening departure, which CO32 is doing. And they are running an early and late morning return to IAH.

I think the really interesting one is that CO19 leaves LHR for EWR before CO18 arrives LHR. Of course they are using the aircraft from CO32 to achieve this, but it's still kind of weird that the return flight leaves before the outbound flight is scheduled to arrive.



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

Yup, seen them all flying over West London already, on one day or another. Whilst I quite like to see the Continental 767's, my favourite 'newcomer' is the AF 777 - a very out-of-place sight here! Mind you, I'm also pleased to see the daily Blue1 ("Blue Fin", aka the flying tuna) DC9 - that's a very curious addition to our skies!

On Sunday, March 30th, fellow a.netter ClassicLover and I saw the NW A333 take off from 27R

I have a photo of it and as soon as I can get it off my phone, then I shall upload it to this thread  Smile

JG  Yeah sure



First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

Probably not the best thing to put where a crew is staying on a open forum.

June 1st as mentioned above.

I was at LHR on Monday 31st, and I saw a DL 767 in the new livery (which may I add looks fantastic) and I think a CO aircraft (but I'm not sure about that.... my memory is awful  Silly ).
