The airport layout at Heathrow is slightly better and the average a/c much bigger. I am surprised LHR doesn't cram in more people. Perhaps T4 has a negative impact on field operations.

Total: 174,962,316 passengers per year. That's more than any other city in the world.
For comparison, Atlanta, the busiest airport in the world, handles 103,902,992 passengers per year. That's not even two third of the total London passenger numbers. Beijing, the number two in the world, handles just over half as many passengers as London.
However what you should also take into consideration is that it's a very tough market with some of the heaviest competition in the world. It may be a big market, but even big markets can be overserved. I'm not saying London is overserved, but it's definitely not underserved.

I can only guess that they have multiplied the number of flights x number of seats x published ticket price x load factor.
