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.
What you might be seeing is the arrival of a flight operated from LAS
, etc via
one of UA
-served cities using the same flight number.
Take, for example, UA934. Currently, this flight operates HNL
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!

It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.
