So far all OZ frames flew through the UK indeed and most of the KE too but a few KE flew straight east, don't remember for sure which ones right now but at least MSN130
OK. if you flew from Barcelona (near enough to Tolouse) to Korea, you do not come north thru UK airspace over London ! It is a legal thing to do with Leasing companies and Insurance thru Lloyds of London ? someone must know !
yes it is a legal thing. there was a legal case in the UK www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Comm/2010/631.html the result of which is that a UK mortgage is only applicable if the transaction takes place whilst the asset is legally in the UK. The A380 is in the UK legally if its in UK air space.
