Around 17.25 landed at LHR, I used to see this quite often.
It would arrive ahead of schedule in JFK quite often too, just as I was boarding my UA flight to london.

BA 001 LHR-JFK 10.30am arrive JFK 9am
BA 002 JFK-LHR 9am arrive LHR 17.25
BA 003 LHR-JFK 18.25pm arrive JFK 5pm
BA 004 JFK-LHR 12pm arrive LHR 8pm

BA 272 LHR-BGI 9.30am dep arr BGI 9.45am
BA 273 BGI-LHR 12pm dep arr LHR 9pm

I also recalled often seeing the concorde arrive in JFK just before my UA flight from JFK to LHR... it was always early on the BA arrivals board...arriving around
So far in 2008 45 flights and Gold already. JFK, IAD, LGA, SIN, HKG, NRT, AKL, PPT, LAX still to book ! Home Airport LCY

Flew the BA001 on 15th August 2003 (the day after the lights went out in NY) and it was certainly the late afternoon departure. Memory fading but I guess by then BA were down to one NY flight per day? In fact here I am in 19A!

Greetings Friends,

Does anybody remember the BA ad campaign - (I believe circa 1995-6?) - the slogan
"you leave. Arrive before" -- it appeared in the NYT?

What a great slogan. Anyone know where I might be able to find the ad?

Thanks

And until BA and AF got permission to operate Concorde to the USA, BA used it (jointly with SQ) LHR-BAH-SIN, and AF used it CDG-DKR-GIG. Perhaps someone has the schedules of those flights?

CDG-JFK
CDG-DKR-GIG (until April 1982)
CDG-(SMA*)-CCS (until April 1982)
CDG-IAD-MEX (until March 1981)
CDG-JFK-MEX (from march 1981 to April 1982)

*SMA = Santa Maria/Azores - Refueling stop

Interesting since I remember being at JFK 3x in 1994. Each time I saw an Air France departure at about 1pm. Perhaps the flight was always delayed?

Nobody has yet mentioned Concorde's service LHR-IAD-DFW and CDG-IAD-DFW, jointly operated with Braniff, using Braniff crews on the IAD-DFW subsonic sectors. The flights technically became Braniff domestic flights between IAD and DFW and were sold at about 10% above the standard IAD-DFW first class fare at the time. That service lasted at little more than a year from January 1979 to sometime in the Spring of 1980. Details/photos here:

That was the "old" schedule.
Until the mid-90s, AF001 used to depart JFK at 1:00PM, to land in CDG at 10:45PM.
But with that schedule, there was no more connections available to anywhere in Europe, so AF changed the schedule of AF001 so that the flight, arriving in CDG at 5:45PM would enable passengers to connect with almost all the AF Europe network.

BA and AF also did quite a few charters to or via JFK, indeed that was the destination of the ill fated F-BTSC in 2000.

Here's an example from BA in 1999, all times local LHR

Saturday 4th December 1999;
09.30 / BA273 / LHR-BGI / G-BOAF
10.30 / BA001 / LHR-JFK / G-BOAA
13.45 / BA002 / JFK-LHR / G-BOAG
15.45 / BA272 / BGI-LHR / G-BOAF
16.05 / BA9010C / LHR-LHR / G-BOAB
18.45 / BA004 / JFK-LHR / G-BOAA
19.00 / BA003 / LHR-JFK / G-BOAC

Sunday 5th December 1999;
08.40 / BA9093C / LHR-JFK / G-BOAD
10.30 / BA001 / LHR-JFK / G-BOAB
12.45 / BA9010C / LHR-LHR / G-BOAA
13.45 / BA002 / JFK-LHR / G-BOAC
16.25 / BA9094C / JFK-LHR / G-BOAD
18.45 / BA004 / JFK-LHR / G-BOAB
19.00 / BA003 / LHR-JFK / G-BOAF

Monday 6th December 1999;
09.30 / BA9093C / LHR-JFK / G-BOAG - to return next day as BA9094C.
10.30 / BA001 / LHR-JFK / G-BOAB
13.45 / BA002 / JFK-LHR / G-BOAF
18.45 / BA004 / JFK-LHR / G-BOAG
19.00 / BA003 / LHR-JFK / G-BOAC

An example of passing through JFK was the BA charters to YYZ, by the late 1990's these were frequent, over a dozen per year.
A few went LHR-YYZ, some via JFK, others LHR-MAN, MAN-JFK, JFK-YYZ, almost always the aircraft returned direct to LHR.
Both BA and AF operated 'round the world charters' starting out at JFK.

Other BA schedules were the thrice weekly LHR-BAH-SIN, between 1979-80, after an abortive 3 flights in late 1977.
BA also operated thrice weekly to IAD, between May 1976 to November 1994, from 1984 to 1991, this service was extended by a supersonic flight to MIA, returning to IAD before going on to LHR.

BA began US services in May 76, with AF, to IAD.
After winning out against the Port of NY, permission was granted for both to operate to JFK from November 1977.
BA soon found they could make this a double daily.

In 2003, with a massive drop off, across the board (including 6 1st class routes being axed), in annual corporate travel contracts, BA re-timed the BA001 to 18.30 to try and capture a more wealthy leisure market.
Intended as temporary until things picked up-and a double JFK daily being possible again, it was overtaken by events leading to retirement and became the final form of BA's scheduled LHR-JFK flights.
