According to the Great Circle Mapper site, the flight duration would be approx 7.30 hours travelling at 500mph.

Hope that helps.

According to EI, their flight 125 is scheduled for 8hrs20mins. So with taxi-ing time etc then approx 7:45 for the actual flight I suppose.

It varies massively, like all transatlantic flights, depending on the wind. I've been on that flight quite a few times, and it's taken anywhere from just over 7 hours to more than 8 hours...

I have flown LHR-ORD a number of times and the flight time is always 7:50, so I agree with DColeMAN that 7:20-7:30 seems likely
cabin crew: doors to automatic and cross-check...

Great circle is a good rough-estimate tool, but on transAtlantic it must be remembered that you are almost certainly goint to fly the NAT tracks and they will be plotted to avoid wind and weather and not just the shortest line. Westbound always takes slightly longer in these latitudes because of the "prevailing westerlies."
