from London to Los Angeles

British airways

Planned 3 daily flights from London Heathrow airport (LHR) to Los Angeles (LAX) during the Winter of 2009/2010. The aircraft is planned to be a Boeing 747-400 on each of these 3 daily flights.

In 2014 BA seems to be running 2 daily A380-800 flights on this route, but probably at 100% load factor.


In 2015 they might start using the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on this route instead of the Boeing 747-400 they used in 2014. The other daily flight will remain with one of their Airbus A340-600 airliners.

DELTA (in cooperation with Virgin Atlantic VS)
In the Summer of 2015 these would be the flights:
VS 7 LHR 1115 - 1435 LAX D 789
VS 23 LHR 1235 - 1605 LAX D 346
DL 35 LHR 1545 - 1957 LAX D 76W
So Delta seems to be flying one of their Boeing 767-400ER on this route.
1x A346 = 308 seats
1x 744 = 367 seats
Total: 675 seats daily

1x A346 = 308 seats
1x 789 = 264 seats
1x 76W (DL) = 208 seats
Total: 780 seats daily

Seems to have a daily flight with a Boeing 747-400 leaving London in the afternoon around 4 pm in 2010. This flight to Los Angeles (LAX) continues daily onwards to Auckland.

An alternative route from London to Auckland with Air New Zealand in 2010 goes via Hong Kong.

Norwegian Air Shuttle
Seems to be flying their 787-8 Dreamliners on this route from London Gatwick in december 2014.
