4 terminals, ranging from 2 to 5, with Terminal 5 being split into 5A, 5B and 5C. T1 was closed in 2015.
Concorde G-BOAB can be added as a static aircraft near the BA Hangars, and there’s a variety of hotels around the airport offering good views for spotters, Premier Inn on Bath Road, Renaissance Hotel (there’s an aviation model shop next door, and a little viewing platform in the car park next to it!) and the Thistle which has a viewing deck.
I believe the count is
24 in terminal 2
28 in terminal 3
22 in terminal 4
And 50 total in terminal 5
Cargo I put at around 15 but that’s a guess. Expect 27 as the direction as that’s the standard set up day to day and while LHR uses a swap runway scenario at certain times of the day I can see an LEJ type set up with 27R being used for 2,3 and 5 and 27L for 4 and cargo, that’s just a guess on my part but would not be surprised
I don’t think the game will actually set up that way, at least initially. I know long term the devs want to implement changing runway configurations but that requires a huge code change to the game and I don’t think they are ready to tackle that yet.
Game will likely work with the 27 direction, but as I said I think it will work similar to LEJ in terms of how the runways are to be used
The des should have just waited and surprised us at the las second with this airport because looking at this airport makes me so exited I can’t even hold myself. And its just killing me to think about the fact that this is still a couple months away
A new route that could be added is air Canada 738M from Halifax. The reason why I am pointing this out is because in the game, you usually cant get a transatlantic M contract, and this one is a real route. If there is other transatlantic M contracts pls tell me because I have not seen any.
Thus is what a Air Canada 738M at LHR looks like
when I said you can’t usually get them I meant in the game. Irl there is flights like air transat a321LR from toronto to madrid or westjet 738M from calgary to gatwick. Or united 753 to lisbon. But you don’t see any contract offers like that in the game, which is why I suggested the halifax route specifically
