Norwegian are moving from 4/5 to 8 based long haul in the North Atlantic WINTER? That's....interesting timing.

Seljuk22 12th Aug 2017 10:49

Should be even more once AUS and ORD will start next summer.

Skipness One Echo 12th Aug 2017 20:29

Agreed, something is going to have to give with DY, one of BA or DY will blink.

I know that Cathay are adding three new European destinations, and I've heard rumours that one European destination will be scrapped (as well as two in Asia).

It makes a lot of sense to consolidate operations at LHR - I believe they only started flying to LGW because of slot restrictions at LHR.

T250 30th Aug 2017 07:56

Quite the opposite in fact, only change at LGW will be A350 changes to B777 and maybe twice a day :cool:

True Blue 30th Aug 2017 13:01

BA starting Toronto 3x weekly from May 18. Wouldn't you think there are lots more destinations with less competition they could try?

Skipness One Echo 30th Aug 2017 13:14

Vegas is also coming back, you go where you have a decent sized market. BA already operate both out of LHR too.

Pizzacake 30th Aug 2017 14:01

Any ideas what aircraft will be on the Vegas route ?? The lgw-las used to be the 777 til it caught fire. Be nice to do the flight on a newer aircraft than the old 747.
Tho you get the feeling as it can be lively flight they put the older equipment on it.

True Blue 30th Aug 2017 14:02

Yes Vegas is also on sale. Does this mean another B777 based at Lgw?

Do you actually know what your talking about?

Pizzacake 30th Aug 2017 14:40

Well while it may not have been the reason the lgw-las service stopped, it was around the same time as a fire ended in a hull loss. Having been on the lhr-las flight it was very much a lively flight with excited passengers starting the party where possible. It was also a very tatty interior.
Essentially is there any chance of getting a shiney new 787 next summer on the route ?
Rather than just trying to be smart, maybe contribute ?

canberra97 30th Aug 2017 15:14

Someone smart enough would never have posted in the way you had hence the 'smart' reply.

The aircraft involved in the accident at Las Vegas was not a hull loss as it was repaired and put back into service and was replaced at LGW by a spare from LHR.

No single aircraft is flying any single route so the previous ceasing of LGW to Las Vegas had nothing to do with the accident at Las Vegas.

The LGW British Airways long haul fleet is purely Boeing 777-200 so no chance of seeing a 'shiny new 787' on the route for next summer if ever.

And what do you actually mean by a 'lively flight with excited passengers starting the party where possible'?

What sort of ridiculous comment is that, you are aware it was the outbound flight ex Las Vegas flight!

Vokes55 30th Aug 2017 16:02

At the rate that BA and Norwegian are expanding, soon the South Terminal will run out of stands capable of handling wide body aircraft. Only 16 widebody gates at South, with 22-23 DY/BA based aircraft next Summer. Add in TS (up to four a day in the Summer), CX, MT and occasionally TK and UX, it's going to be very crowded on Pier 2/3.

So, wiki has the aircraft listed as a hull loss and repaired. Mea culpa.

Fleets operating different services change, fleets operating out of bases change, hence the question.

And if you where smart enough to read, I've flown LHR-LAS and return. The flight to LAS was lively, the return leg less so ( broke, hungover, both) Your smartness seems to have confused two independent statements. 🤔
