I'm wondering if this was the period when Northwest had a shot at a range of European destinations from Boston? If so, they possibly used a DC-10, and diluted the traffic for TWA who might downsize from the longstanding 747 to a Tristar. BA probably hung in there with a 747. Northwest would have to serve Gatwick, the others Heathrow.

The author of the OAG couldn't have deduced it better. Correct on all counts! Here's the skeds...

TW 754 BOS-LHR 1910 - 0620 L10 Daily

NW 048 BOS-LHR 2000 - 0710 D10 Daily

BA 214 BOS-LHR 2100 - 0810 747 Daily
