Aircraft Staying Overnight At Heathrow

Thu Jun 28, 2001 6:00 am

What airlines keep aircraft at heathrow overnight, except BA ofcourse. For example if a flight from the US landed at heathrow at about 9 or 10pm, then would it stay there for the night and make the return flight in the morning?

Any ideas
Thanks

I'm not sure if any US airlines would keep aircraft at LHR overnight because all the flights as far as I know from the US to Europe leave in the evening and get in Europe in the morning. They then make their return trip in late morning or early afternoon.

I alwasy see a CX 744 in the BD hangar every time I am at LHR. Why is this (is it permanently there?)
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

North American airlines DO leave some of their planes overnight in LHR. These planes are the ones that leave North America in the morning and therefore land at LHR in the late evening (the daylight flights). The next day, these planes are the first planes to leave in the morning back to North America.
