These 6x sectors will take just under 9 hours from blocks off in BHX at 12:15 to blocks on in BHX at 20:50 - (this info is for a Monday in April).
There will be 25 minutes turnarounds in GCI and JER and 1hr 35 scheduled on the ground in LHR.

Heres a typical schedule:

dep BHX 12:15
arr JER 13:25 // dep JER 13:50
arr GCI 14:15 // dep GCI 14:40
arr LHR 15:45 // dep LHR 17:20
arr GCI 18:25 // dep GCI 18:50
arr JER 19:15 // dep JER 19:40
arr BHX 20:50
That is cutting it quite fine given the factors involved with channel islands fog and LHR congestion. With a one hour report and 15 minutes after duty to factor in, it doesn't leave that much wiggle room.
