JKF departure is a bit early as well. Not a sleeper flight for sure.

Holiday market given its LGW?
The slots are the old MAN flights which drop the day before this starts. Yes, the whole day is wasted but MAN is hardly aiming for that market. More the connections & people mover market which is similar to LGW so perfect. The lunchtime flights aren't as busy out of Heathrow although the 6pm returns are usually packed.

It would be interesting to find out exactly how many flights BA & subsideries will have per day out of JFK in the near future.

8x daily to LHR
1x daily to LGW
2x daily to LCY
1x daily to CDG
1x daily to BRU
plus any other OpenSkies routes

13x daily!
