We flew right over Dublin and the Irish Sea to land in LGR just to fly back to Dublin and back over the Irish Sea. Once we got there we took off, flew back over the Irish Sea, past London (where we had been a few hours before) and to Brussels. We spent 2 days in Brussels. Then, we flew back over London and the Irish sea to Dublin. We spent a few days in Dublin. From there we flew back over the Irish Sea to London. We got on an AA 777 and flew back over the Irish Sea, past Dublin, and to JFK / KJFK), USA - New York">JFK...

Barring bad weather...PHL-FLL and vice versa is almost always the same route...take off from PHL, turn south and stay over the Delmarva Peninsula, passing right over ORF and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, then hugging the coast until Wilmington, NC and then continuing south, out of sight for land for the rest of the flight until a few minutes prior to landing....vice versa on the return flight...

All the MAN-Eastern Europe flights go over LHR (and usually turn over it).

Seems like virtually all trans-Atlantic flights from the U.S. to the continent of Europe (with the exception of the Iberian Peninsula) overfly the U.K. somewhere between MAN and GLA.
