UK Routes Pre 1970

Can someone tell me how European flights from the Caribbean were routed to the UK or Western Europe say when BOAC was in existence?

Stops at JFK were part of Lufthansa's and some BOAC routes from South America and Caribbean. Qantas' Fiesta route to the Carib. was via Nandi or Papetee-Acapulco-Mexico City-Bahamas-Bermuda. I'm not sure if that route connected to LHR from Bermuda w/707s.

BDA is Bermuda.

Are you asking what stops they made, or what lat-lons they passed over?

Circa 1965, or 1955, or when?
