LHR and the 787

Tue Mar 26, 2019 6:47 am

Sorry if it’s been done, did a quick search and couldn’t find any info on this.
I’m aware of threads regarding the airport with most A380 operators and was
thinking does LHR have the most 787 carriers?
BA, Virgin, Air Canada, AA, UA, Avianca, Aero Mexico, Kenya, Ethiopian and Qatar occasionally?
Jordanian, Gulf Air, EL AL, Oman, Air India, Azerbaijan, JAL, Qantas.

That’s roughly 18 different airlines off the top of my head may be more or less?

Airlines operating scheduled 787 service at LHR, at the moment or within the last 3 months, are as follows:

Aeromexico (788,789)
Air Canada (788 limited, 789)
Air India (788)
American (788, 789 might be scheduled for summer?)
Avianca (788)
Azerbaijan (788)
BA (788,789)
Biman Bangladesh (limited) (788)
China Southern (788)
El Al (789)
Etihad (limited) (789)
Gulf Air (789)
Hainan (788,789)
JAL (788)
Kenya Airways (788)
Oman Air (789)
Qantas (789)
Royal Brunei (788)
Royal Jordanian (788)
United (788,789)
Vietnam Airlines (789)
Virgin (789)

ET use 359s and the 787s haven't appeared for a while. QR have 359s, 77Ws and 388s scheduled, afaik the 788 hasn't been scheduled or subbed onto the LHR route in the past few years.

Interesting to note how popular the 788 is at LHR, given this aircraft was supposed to by-pass hubs and connect secondary markets. There's an irony to it being so well used at a heavily slot restricted hub.

LHR is not a 'hub' in the same mould as DXB. It has significant O&D traffic.

Many airlines only have 787-8, some have more -8 then -9. AeroMexico, China Southern, BA, AA, Kenya, and Royal Jordanian have large 787-8 fleets and limited & increasing 787-9 fleets.

Yes and many of those 787s will have replaced smaller 767s (e.g. on the transatlantic routes) or the similarly sized 772 or A330/40.
it's the bus to stansted (now renamed National Express a6 to ruin my username)

That's wrong as far as BA is concerned. They have 12 788s and 18 789s. Next to arrive will be 787-10s, next year.

Thanks by bhxalex, Seems I missed a few.
Do any airports get close to this amount of 787 operators?
