LHR-NYC Daily Flights!

Sat Jan 12, 2002 6:48 pm

Can someone tell me how LHR can sustain around 25 daily wide-body flights to NYC every day..it's not as though it's just over the road..it's 3000 miles away.....it's beyond me!

cheers

In my view the first route the A380 should be deployed! (I am sure BA will get them for that in a few years)

I thought Karliboy was wrong on this for sure. I thought he was counting all the code share flights but I counted 23 daily flights. Guess the reason there are so many flights NYC-London is easy. Lots of pax.
JFK-LHR - 15 flights
AA - 4
BA - 5
AI - 1
KU - 1
UA - 2
VS - 2
JFK-LGW - 0 flights
EWR-LHR - 6 flights
AA - 1
BA - 2
VS - 2
UA - 1
EWR-LGW - 2 flights
CO - 2

I'd bet 50%+ of the pax are not going London to New York. Many are going from some smaller city that does not have non-stop Europe-USA flights. JFK and LHR are hubs.

BA no longer flies JFK-LGW?

In addition to the reasons mentioned in the previous post, the NYC-LON route's O&D traffic is like 2 million pax a year, not even counting connecting traffic. It's one of the busiest routes in the world.

B737-700: Though I don't know whether Delta has never flown JFK-LGW by their own choosing or if it's due to not-so-open skies restrictions, their JFK hub to Europe acquired from Pan Am in 1991 included every route except JFK-LHR, which went to American, who had paid Pan Am lots of $$$ to acquire their LHR routes just months earlier.

As for why so many daily LHR-JFK/EWR flights, another reason is the aircraft types used today compared with 10-20 years ago. Most if not all of the frequencies flown by UA and AA are with 763 aircraft, whereas their predcessors, PA and TW, used 747s almost exclusively.

The Pan Am routes went to UA, the TWA routes came to AA. At one point we were up to 6 NYC-LHR flights a day, 2 day trips and 4 night 2trips, I believe that one of them was a EWR trip. A couple of the night trips left minutes apart, I could never figure that one out.

Cheers,

Any news on whether the EWR to STN is being reinstated by Continental?

No flights to LGA because the arpt is too small, only 7,000 feet of runway and have heavy weight restrictions...

the reason is that LHR is a major european hub. The majority of passengers on these flights will be transferring on to another flight heading to europe or maybe even north africa and asia. Heathrow handles 60m passengers a year, thats almost the entire population of the UK.

If you really want to be picky you could also include GLA-EWR route with continental, and (hopefully) EDI-EWR starting this summer

Extra, extra picky people would include the PIA MAN-JFK service and CO MAN-EWR service (this service was reported today as having 70% loads)

LHR-JFK/EWR is the busiest intercontinental flight in the world, linking the 2 principal social, economic and cultural capitals of the Western world. The high level of business travel also favours frequent services - after all a full business class on each flight may well compensate for a shortfall in economy pax (not to mention that cargo of high value is there for the offering too).

LGA is not an international airport so no services fly there from any foreign country save Canada - international status is not needed for those flights.

Hop to it, fly for life!

Do those extra extra picky people believe that MAN is part of LHR?  Laugh out loud
