    TEMPE, Ariz., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- US Airways (NYSE: LCC - News) today announced it will begin service at London's Heathrow Airport early next year. Service between Philadelphia and London Heathrow is scheduled to start on March 29, 2008 with tickets available for purchase on Dec. 1. The airline plans to operate the flights with US Airways flagship international aircraft, the Airbus A330 offering 29 Envoy and 259 economy seats.

    The new Philadelphia-Heathrow route will be US Airways' seventh new transatlantic route since 2006. With the new service, US Airways' European destinations served from Philadelphia increase to 20.

    The airline recently acquired the Heathrow arrival/departure slots necessary to operate this schedule:

    Philadelphia - London Heathrow London Heathrow - Philadelphia
    Flight Departure Arrival Flight Departure Arrival
    720 10:45 p.m. 11:05 a.m. 721 12:50 p.m. 4:00 p.m.
    Wonder whom they got the slots from, bmi?

          Edited the thread title to reflect those news, US certainly is in growth mode now. Lots of expansion for CLT, seeing as how they are still p!ssed at PHL for putting Delta into the international gates .

            If only they can get there reservations system to function properly and not book a different date and multiple seats for the same Passenger it would be great....... but that is a entierly different story.

              United and American are the only US carriers that are able to fly to LHR.

                well i caught this landing on 27R at Heathrow.. i'm guessing it was a divert or some special service as there are no other pictures of NWA at LHR.

                i also thought it could be a joint service, eg: KLM/NWA, but VS/CO also partner and ive never seen a CO land at LHR.

                    I believe they acquired slots from UA.

                        You sure it wasn't NW that got the AF-KL slots? Or maybe DL got some from both? Because I am next to positive UA transferred some of their rights to DL.

                          I read an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution yesterday about it, and I'm positive it was DL/AF. I know it for a fact, because both my grandfather and I thought it was strange for them to get LHR slots from AF.

                            That works for me.

                              By the way, I hope I didn't come across as persnickety.
                              You wouldn't believe how hard it is to convey tone of voice over the internet.
