Odd flight timing, BA237 LHR-DME

Tue Mar 26, 2019 10:20 pm

:Wondering about this flight,LHR 21:30 DME 04:20 does anyone from the UK really need to arrive in DME at 04:00? Can't be for business travellers, is it slot related, a 3hr overnight flight to loose so much sleep seems so cruel.

This kind of flight timing is pretty common around the world, even for a 3 hr flight.

BA237 might be appealing to business travellers on a tight schedule. But it returns as BA236, departing DME at 5:30ish and getting back to LHR around 7:00, which would connect pax onto Trans-Atlantic flights. That's where the bigger bucks would be made.

The flight time is 3:45 and early arrivals into MOW airports are not at all uncommon, including good onward connections into Russia and Asia, in this case via S7.
