LAX was the starting/ending point-- as I recall they left westward in the early afternoon, but I'll check.

Depends on where you caught it from. LAX-IAD-LHR-DEL or one of the other stops.

Didn't it operate via JFK for a few years as well instead of IAD??

The original JFK-LHR-DEL-HKG-LAX-JFK flights (1/2) started Feb. 10th 1993, but can't remember when they switched over to IAD.

Pretty sure that involved a couple of plane changes. The actual RTW flight didn't start until 2001; the April 2001 TT shows

LAX lv 1230
HKG arr 1825 lv 2135
DEL 0030-0335
LHR 0810-1250
IAD 1535-1800
LAX arr 2016

That the right year? No sign of it in the summer 1993 timetable.
