I was under the impression that when satellite C opens, all BA operations at LHR would move to T5? was this never the intention?

Peter Lynam, Head of Network Operations at British Airways, said: "The final part of our Heathrow terminal moves programme went extremely well"

perhaps he was misquoted?

I know close relations with QF is obviously a factor, plus BA must have spent a pretty penny on the FIRST and Club lounges now open in T3, so perhaps their Boomerang route is going to be permanently based at the terminal?

Also will the other codeshare flights leave T3 once the 757's go at the end of the year?

The initial plan was that all flights would be in T5 except the shorthaul destinations served by the 757 and flights to BKK/SIN/SYD as these would operate alongside QF operations under the Joint Service Agreement (JSA).

I'm not sure if the shorthaul routes departing T3 will ever move to T5 but i'm pretty sure that the longhaul routes there will stay. BA has just opened lounges etc there and I believe it will make transfers a lot easier between T5 and T3 versus T5 and T4 as they are geographically much closer together.

The ulimate thing for BA and ONEWORLD to do would be to close terminal 3 and extend terminal 5 with a D and perhaps E concourses to do all teh AA, Cathay, Qantas, JAL and others alliance memebers flights.

Quoting Jfk777 (Reply 2):

Would definitely be an ultimate solution, but they'd be hard-pushed to find any room!

Concourses D & E would be in the space between terminal 5 and on the terminal 3 sight.
