What are all cities served from LHR on UA?
Other than the obvious:
IAD
SFO
LAX
JFK
What are all cities served from LHR/LGW on AA

Thanx,

LHR is served by UA from LAX, SFO, IAD, ORD, and JFK.
At one point LHR was also served by UA from BOS, EWR, DEL, AMS, ATH, Berlin, and one or two other European cities at some point when United bought Heathrow rights from Pan Am.

Cheers!

Hi all, I was searching through some UAL 777 pictures and it showed a picture of a 777 in LHR arriving from LAS and SAN.

AA serves LHR from JFK (6x daily except 5x on Sat.), BOS (2x daily except 1x on Sat.), ORD (5x daily), LAX (2x daily Mar.-Nov., 1x daily Nov.-Feb.) and MIA (1x daily, 2x on Sat.), all with 777 equipment.

LGW is served by AA from DFW (2x daily on 777, 4x week on 763), and RDU (1x daily on 777).

TriJetFan1,

What you might be seeing is the arrival of a flight operated from LAS, SAN, etc via one of UA's LHR-served cities using the same flight number.

Take, for example, UA934. Currently, this flight operates HNL-LHR with the same flight number all the way but with a stop and plane change at LAX. So, technically when UA934 arrives at Heathrow, it is arriving from Honolulu as well as Los Angeles based on the continuation of the flight number from its original point of origin. Other current examples of UA flights arriving to LHR from other UA stations carrying the entire flight number all the way through the journey include:

UA938 from SEA
UA928 from PDX
UA918 and UA930 from SAN
UA920 and UA958 from DEN

Hope this clears things up for you!

Regards,
NZblue

NZblue-Aren't you also forgetting UA956 (currently a 763, was a 752 when I flew it this April) SFO-JFK, and the flight number carrying to the 777 from JFK-LHR?

I should have been more specific and said my above examples of UA flights to LHR were from non-UA hubs in the United States (DEN obviously excluded).

Thanks for pointing it out, SHUPirate1  Big thumbs up

AA serves LGW non stop from DFW also.

I thought UA stopped flying EWR-LHR in late 2003. I could be wrong, though.

In recent times, the 1990s, UA also flew from LHR to BRU with a 763 each day. From what we were told, it was done more to "protect" the slot so that they could say it was being used (and then maybe switch it to a long haul at a later date) and to avoid higher parking fees in LHR. There were only about 15 people on the plane total.
