Typical Flight Route BA 059 LHR-CPT

Wed Feb 04, 2009 5:00 pm

Can anyone inform me of the typical routing this flight follows, and over which countries it is likely to fly? I'll be on BA 59 on Feb 15th.

Thanks in advance.
I never think of the future - it comes soon enough.

well just had a look at the waypoints it follows on flightaware (albeit for the CPT-LHR leg) and it went Cape Town - over Namibia, passed the coast of Congo, up through Gabon, Cameroon, Nigeria, Niger, Algeria, passed just east of Minorca, then just south of Lyon, passing Beauvais then into LHR.

I thought FlightAware was only valid for flights to/from North America. I just tried looking for the Capetown to Heathrow route (FACT-EGLL) and nothing came up. Am I missing something here?

Although flightaware doesnt show a line between the 2 airports, to the right of the map it does display the waypoints information. In this case :


KODES1B KODES UQ43 OKNOL UN186 EKBAT
UN186 WHV UR987 VNA UR526 LIKAD UW118 IT
UG861 DLA UA604 AS UR978 ERKEL UR978
ATAFA UR978 KAMER UR978 BALEN UN854
ETREK UM976 BRY UM733 KOPOR UT426 DIMAL
UT420 ALESO

http://www.fallingrain.com/world/ is a good waypoint info database
