|Quoting AirbusA6 (Thread starter):|
This suggests that given the choice, all major long haul carriers to London want to operate to the major hub, rather than to the 'secondary' airports. Are they missing a trick here? I thought the whole point of the new generation of aircraft like the 787 and A350 was to reduce the need for large planes operating into major hubs like LHR?

It's the connections that are so coveted.
|Quoting N328KF (Reply 2):|
You're missing the fact that LHR is the O&D mecca for airlines servicing the London area.
