Wow, how could you ever get sick of seeing the massive number of widebodies in all different liveries that visit LHR?

Bartond, I get sick of seeing the narrowbodies, more than the widebodies!

Air Baltic are starting with 737's...Or they may have already started I'm not sure.

There should be 4 new airlines at LHR this year, China Eastern, Etihad Airways, Albanian Airlines and possibly Mexicana. Which should take Heathrow closer to the 100-airline mark.

Not sure but didn't the Department of Transport decide against allowing Albanian Airline to fly to the UK?

Albanian Airways was banned, but i believe they've got their act together in regards to safety regulations, and are hoping to start London-Tirana flights in the summer.

Hey bigpappa

I suppose you'll be glad to see them as long as they don't arrive before 7am or depart after 11pm!!
