According to a West African news agency 'there is a link online but in French only but I can't upload as I'm using my phone' ASKY Airlines intend on operating Lome to LGW in late 2017 using Boeing 737-800, the topic has been discussed on airliners.net.

It says nothing about London on their website I am aware of that but the airline has already announced Johannesburg and plan to serve Paris towards the end of the year with a further route to London in the future.

Not all airlines websites state information like that as many are not updated or don't have a very good PR page but I can assure you I have read it in French online via a link in the African Aviation forum on airliners.net.

Is this the best first comment that you could make? Sure Lhr is full, is it not? Has been for many years, has it not? At some point airlines will not be able to switch across because maybe it will actually be full.

LHR is not 'full'. Expensive slots- yes, inconvenient timed slots- yes, full- no.
Agree though this is a waiting game for LHR, it usually is.

Yes and no. There's physical capacity, but not much headroom under the 480K pa ATM limit

They did have LHR slots in recent years, albeit leased. They're not at Gatwick by choice. It seem having struggled at LHR with the economics of the A340, LGW with the A359 won't be much of an improvement, especially given EVA's one stop option will still be at LHR.
Good to see them back in the UK though.

It seems others agree, so it can't have been that bad ;-) I was also in a hurry.

Although much publicity/media talk does indeed frequently comment that LHR is "full" (or 98/99% so), there still seems to be a fair degree of churn/slot trading on an ongoing basis, as carriers change their schedules/frequencies etc. Not impossible to think that something else will give and this find it's way in, in time.

This is old news as it was announced on 16 September 2016 that China Airlines would be returning to London with direct flights from TPE to London Gatwick starting on 01 December 2017 flying four times a week with Airbus A350.

To other posters

The Heathrow waiting room comments do get tedious after a while!

True; they are tedious - but they are true, nevertheless.
