Re: LHR early arrivals

Around 15 flights have slots to land before 0601 utc, the Qantas is probably one of them. Otherwise they have to hold until after 0600, however early they are. Then for an hour landings are permitted on both runways to clear the stacks, possible as departures are less in the first hour. Then they re...

The vast majority of these flights are at weekends using the spare capacity released by fewer 'business' destinations at weekends. BA does/originally did these flights for one particular travel agent (Mark Warner I think), so presumably they decide where they want the flights to go.

Before this order was placed AA had 58 options for the 787. Assuming that they have converted 47 options into firm orders there is 11 left. There was another 28 options added to this order so there should be a total of 39 options in total left. For more refer to http://nyc787.blogspot.com.au/ -----...
