daily star as well as other national media will usually report on the team's departure from dhaka ZIA. they usually mention the airline that they take.

it shouldnt be too hard to figure out since they will probably take a direct DAC- to london flight.

It's not that hard to find out . Just find out which flight is coming from Dhaka in Saturday afternoon in London . If there are few ya can get help from The Airlines find out which airlines it's . Then ring up the airlines and find out they are arriving also find out which airlines coming from Dhaka at 11:45 pm on Friday night there won't be too many anyway . Cricket team normally don't tell anyone about the flights unless they know you .
It's Biman Bangladesh Airlines according to the newspapers ring up the Airlines in London tell them which flight is coming at saturday afternoon in London .

i am pretty sure its going to be BA. what else can it be. they are going to england to play series for the first time. and whenever people go to england from dhaka for the first time to do something they usually take BA. because from dhaka to london that is without any competition the best flight.

Guys,

All we need to do is ring heathrow and ask for arrivals from dhaka on Saturday. It's most likely gonna 1 of 3 airlines, BA, Biman or Gulf.

There may be a website that shows arrivals at heathrow T3.

Watch this space!!!

BA does come in from Dhaka on Saturday! My guess is that they will fly BA as it is non-stop! In that case, they will leave Dhaka on Saturday early morning, and reach London Saturday afternoon at around 1!

But, it could also be Biman, Emirates, Gulf, Qatar or any number of other airlines that all fly out of Dhaka almost every day and will definitely have a connection to London everyday! So, we need to make sure that we know what they are flying.

According to today's Janakantha:

BD team will leave for London on 6th May (Friday) at 11:40pm (BD time). That means, they will start at 5:40pm UK time on Friday. If it takes 9 hours fly then they will reach Heathrow around 3:00am Saturday moring, I guess.

Arriving Heathrow - 08.45 - Saturday morning.

This is the only biman flight coming in on Saturday.

11:40 pm BDT is 6:40pm London, and it will take longer than 9 hours. The direct flight takes ten and half. And in any case, Heathrow is closed between midnight and 5:30 anyway! Only in third world countries do airports stay open all night long. In the west, they people who live around the airport need a good nights sleep!
