Hey buddy, Well just by looking it looks like this is what I found:

GIA has a 752 to LGW SA has a 744 from JNB (continues to IAD)
EK has A332 from DXB
MEA has a A332 from BEY
ET has a 763 from ADD
VK has a A320 from LOS
KQ has a 73G from NBO (and one continues to Freetown)
KL has a MD-11 from AMS
LH has a A332 from FRA
Afriqiah has A320 from TIP
BA has a 763 from LHR
AZ has a 763 from MXP
North American flies from JFK with a 763

I think that just about covers the majors, let Soups fill you in on the regionals  

edit to change ME to MEA

Not forgetting North American 763 from JFK on Saturdays , Slok , Aero Contractors, Bellview and ADC, mostly from lagos.
And I think on mondays, if you go at the right time, you should get 2 South African 744's at Accra. One heading to IAD and the other returning to JNB.

KL692: check out www.gcaa.com.gh for timetables (which are not too far off the mark) - early mornings 0700-0900 and afternoons from 1430-dusk are when most movements occur; all the european stuff arrives and departs after dark.

Also other airlines / aircraft regularly seen:

ET uses 757 (in place of the 763) on some Mon, Thur
KQ uses mix of 73G and 763 from NBO
Antrak (ATR-42, F-27, DC-9-50) on routes around the sub-region and domestically
Citylink (L-410, B. 1900) on domestic routes and charters
Air Ivoire (F-28) daily from ABJ
Air Senegal (73G) twice weekly from DKR via ABJ
DHL (727, ATR-42)
TAAG (732) on Sun, Mon
DAS (DC-10) Tues
Ghana Air Force (F-27, F-28) most days
Cargolux (744) Mon

Aerocontractors no longer operate to ACC from LAG
ADC never had a schedule to ACC from LAG

You can see my pics from Accra searching for Paul Morley

Well I'd go with Ghana International Airlines who can boast an ontime performance in January of 100%. LGW-ACC with 34" seat pitch in economy. Can't be bad.

You might want to check: if I remember correctly, taking pictures is not allowed.
This has been true for more than 20 years if I remember correctly. Can anyone
else confirm this?

Hello.... Welcome to my world lol

Well if you visit ACC between 6pm and 9pm thats the where the majority of airlines fly. you do get loads of visitors like DAS Air, Polar Air, Volga, DHL, Cargolux, MK (dc8/747) and many more.
You do get some rare visitors now and then.....
check out on www.gcaa.com.gh and check the daily timetable. All european airlines fly daily with the exception of Alitalia (No mondays) and astreus.
You also get Nouvelair A320 often operating for 8U. During the Hajj season last year i saw 2 ET 737 (with winglets) and a 767 together.

To take pictures you have to get written permission from the airport security officer.

I had the pleasure of flying the MD-11, ORD-AMS-ACC-AMS (then a 747 back to ORD). This was actually a year ago (March 11) and, for some reason, the MD-11 was substituted for the 747 on the ORD-AMS route.

At any rate, spotting at ACC will be fun. When my plane flight departed, around 11 PM local time, SAA, BA, were also preparing for departure. I believe Emirates was out there too.

I hope you have fun and I look forward to seeing the pictures.
