If you are wondering what is happening at Heathrow at the moment, I managed to get hold of the British Airways traffic figures for last Sunday.
Across the whole day, BA operated:
- 43 passenger aircraft arrivals
- 41 passenger aircraft departures
- 15 cargo-only arrivals
- 18 cargo-only departures
Long-haul departures were 33% full whilst short-haul departures were 76% full. This doesn’t account for no-shows so the actual number of people travelling will have been lower.
I have the total passenger numbers too but it may be too sensitive to publish. It is a low four-digit number in each direction.
