You’re extrapolating back from the final results to try and determine what that data is.
No, I'm not. See above.

There is insufficient information to allow any extrapolation, so I haven't attempted any.

There is, however, enough information to verify whether the rules of the scheme (as defined by Heathrow, and based purely on rankings and weighting) are being applied correctly.

They clearly aren't.

Heathrow could very easily defuse any criticism by simply telling us how many points each metric ranking has contributed to any given airline's aggregate score. But that's not going to happen, because the whole thing would fall apart like a house of cards. If you have in-house access to those numbers, I'll be very interested to know what you think.

Can's see a discussion on this anywhere else, seems as good a place as any!

The UK and the USA have reached an open-skies deal

Ljubljana is a new route, but Montpellier was served twice a week from LHR in Summer 2017.

No surprise, S&P just reporting what is already known. Brexit has already hit the UK economy with a 'broadside'. Whicever way it goes now, we cannot claw back what is lost.

You're a bit behind the times, there have already been multiple reports of drone activity at LHR.

Yes, BA460/461 is normally a B77W, occasionally a B772 or A321.

That was true up to the end of last summer.

More recently, the BA460/461 has almost always been one of the much newer 777-300ER.

When BA operated LHR - INV and ABZ back in the 70's and 80's I seem to recall that it was usually a Trident - Is my memory right...?

I suspect that, like LHR/EDI, those two routes were operated by the Vanguard at the beginning of the 1970s, with the Trident gradually taking over later.
