There is normally a five-hour time zone difference between U.S. Eastern time and British time.

American Airlines operates a transatlantic joint business with British Airways, Iberia and Finnair and also offers transatlantic codeshares for or on its other oneworld alliance partners.

The joint business has more lie-flat seats on routes between JFK and London Heathrow Airport (LHR) than any other alliance, American claims.
