British Airways, Boeing 747-200. The stop was Philadelphia. A few years earlier, maybe 1985, the stop was Washington Dulles.

You're right about BA and the 747-200. However, per the 1987 schedule I referenced, the stop was in Washington Dulles, not Philadelphia
48. (1987) Only one airline operates between North America and London utilizing three different types of wide bodied aircraft on the same route each built by a different manufacturer. Identify the airline and the city it serves London from with its three different types of widebodies. And what the heck - you might as well identify the aircraft types as well.

Pan Am
Boeing 747
Lockheed L-1011
McDonnell Douglas DC-10

This sounds nice, but no - the airline wasn't Pan Am. Lest we provide too many clues via fleet make-up, I won't comment on aircraft types until the correct airline and city of origin are identified. Please, guess again!
