Hello, guys.

I though this would be an interesting topic.

Of what I understand ANC is the biggest and most busy heavy jst airport in the world.

Of those who haven't been there before it is 75% with cargo jets. Nice place.

What are your thought guys?

I'm with Gkirk on this one - in the last twelve months I have been to Narita, LA, Frankfurt, Paris (CDG), Bangkok, JFK, Brussels and a whole host of others and not even Narita came close to LHR - its amazing to see all those 747's, 777's 767's and A340's etc lined up at the terminals let alone the dozens of aircraft at remote stands.

I have to say I have there are airports (mainly US) with more aircraft - but mostly smaller narrow bodies.

LHR is the busiest airport in the world, I don't think LHR is the biggest though.

ATL is the busiest airport in the world. LHR is probably the airport with most widebodies. LHR is the busiest International airport in the world.

Could easily be Haneda, which at present is also the worlds busiest airport. (dont forget all the ANA 747-400 in domestic layout)



The world is really getting smaller these days

I would think that LHR is among the busiest ones. I was in London on October 12th of last year (a bright, sunshiny day) and there were aircrafts all over the sky climbing up and away from LHR (mostly widebodies).

LHR is NOT the busiest airport, it has the most INTERNATIONAL flights of any airport in the world.

I think the question is very misleading, it could have many different interpretations (biggest airport that handles widebodies, airport that handles the most widebodies, airport with most amount of passengers on widebodies etc etc etc)

Please clarify what you mean by 'Biggest And Busiest Heavy Jet Airport...'.

As a percent of total aircraft as heavies, NRT definately takes the cake. Most of the narrows are sent through Haneda. Even the domestic routes are served with pretty large aircraft, the 744D and tons of 767's.
