I was just thinking of some hub-airports of airlines that are not very far away like

Heathrow/Gatwick (BA)
Charles de Gaulle/Orly (AF)
Kastrup/Arlanda (SK)
Frankfurt/Munich (LH)

and how (LONGHAUL) aircrafts between these two hubs are transfered or repositioned?
Is this happening via W-Pattern somewhere far away from their homecountry or do the airlines operate ferryflights or revenue flights?

A318/A319/A320/A321 AB3/A306/A310/A333/A343/A346 732/733/735/736/744/752/763/764/772/773 DH3 F70 F100 CR2 CR1 CR7 ATR42

BA do try to operate this when positioning between LGW and LHR. For example an LGW based a/c needed in LHR will often operate LGW-MAN-LHR, with another operating LHR-MAN-LGW if required.

I'm pretty sure crews are bused/taxied between airports, I doubt they'd be subjected to the LHR-LGW National Express shuttle...

Gale force fog... don't you love it?
