I wonder if anyone could provide me with the departure and arrival times of American Airlines, Continental Airlines,
Delta Air Lines, Garuda Indonesia, Northwest Airlines, US Airways and Virgin Atlantic flights at LGW during the summer of 2003 please?

I have just found some old footage of Gatwick Airport filmed from the now closed Skyview on a VHS tape. It shows the South terminal occupied by many US carriers. It shows two separate occasions where I went to Gatwick in 2003, the first one shows a very busy South terminal with most gates occupied, but on the second one there doesn't appear to be many US Airlines left. I am just interested to know the times. Did the majority of the US carriers serving Gatwick leave in the morning?

CO Newark was definitely two flights per day in 2003 with no service at/around 1500. CO19 operated at 1500 in Summer 2002 on a 777 though and in Summer 2001 on a B767-400 also at that time. I don't have records back beyond 2001 to check when the last Conti DC10s left Gatwick but some time around 1999 rings a bell - long before Northwest ceased to terrify the local population (or anyone passing on a Gatwick Express train) with DC10 departures off 08R on a hot day.
DL Boston (DL60/61) lasted for less than one summer in 2001 with a 767-300 which used to arrive at 0545 and depart at 1310. Started on 2 June 2001 and inevitably ceased almost immediately after 9/11. Aircraft used to swap over with the 767 operating DL36/37 CVG-LGW-CVG every day in Gatwick.

Here is the data. Apologies for the slightly rubbish presentation. Where there are more than one entry for a particular flight number the flight may have operated at different times on different days in the season or there is a clock change during the season.

Quoting JosephJarvis (Reply 19): Does this mean that flights VS031 and VS033 departed LGW at 13:00?, as VS031 and VS033 depart LGW at 09:35/09:40 these days and it would seem a massive difference in departure times?
Yes but MCO for sure is the same as it was all those years ago. For historic VS flight info go to www.v-flyer.com/forum and ask the guys nicely. Sure someone will have an old timetable they can dig out.
