British Airways!

I recently visited Heathrow Airport in London and I was wondering how many departures daily they have from Heathrow. Could you tell me please!

Over 1000.

Are You Sure?

i am not sure about the figure of 1000....

if you take 1 departure every 2 minutes.... that would be 30 every hour...

if we go from 7:AM to 10:PM that would be 450 departures including ALL aircraft and airlines.

BA only has around 250 aircraft... how can they depart from LHR "over 1000 times" a day?

I would suggest the number is more like 200 a day.

Whoops, I Never Read Question

Whoops, sorry.... i thought the question was specific to BA....

I would still say that 1000 is too many.... mathematically is difficult

probably around 600.

You didn't read the question wrong, well the topic did say British Airways, and one would assume that "they" is referring to British Airways...a 1000 does seem too much, wasn't it Atlanta that had 1000 movements (take offs and landings i believe) from Delta alone?
