Emirates started flying the A330 into LHR from the end of September 1999. They use it on the late evening arrival/late night departure from/to Dubai (EK005/EK006).

EK operates another two daily flights to LHR.

EK001/EK002 which arrives around middayish and departs early afterrnoon uses a Boeing 777-300.

EK003/EK004 arrives around 1830-1900 and departs at 2000/2030 ish. This flight uses a Boeing 777-200.

Sometimes due to maintenance etc. they substitute the A330 for A300/A310. Now they have enough A330s it is unlikely to happen that frequently.
