Re: Gatwick airport; is it still world no 1 single runway airport by pax numbers

Yes, LGW is slot controlled. This document, issued by the slot coordinators, ACL, will tell you far more than you probably want to know about how many slots there are at particular times, and which airlines have slots.

(source: http://www.panynj.gov/airports/pdf-traffic/ATR2016.pdf Page 32) As for what percentage is Widebody, that depends on season (40% of traffic is, however on easyJet, who only have 319s/320s)..
