Spotted At LGW And LHR In The Same Day?!

Tue Oct 28, 2003 3:50 am

Hi there,

Now this was taken at LHR and I spotted this plane at LGW on the same day!

Could this be an arrival from the US to LHR to drop off then transfer to LGW to pick up for another trek to the US?

Probably answered my own question, but it threw me for a second Big grin!

Regards,

Justin.

As much as an AA LHR-LGW might be useful for some,it definitely doesn't happen.

I'd say one of you got the registration wrong.

American Airlines (in general as like USA Airlines, not just generally AA) have letter changes at the end of the registrations. So you could get N780AA and N780AN or N780AP (just examples) from the same airline
