Default BA Clocks Fastest Subsonic JFK-LHR Transatlantic Flight

Helped my strong tailwinds, BA 747-400 just did JFK-LHR in a record time of 4 hours 56 minutes, just a minute quicker than a Virgin A350 which landed shorly afterwards, according to this article from the UK's independent newspaper.

Of course the flights going in the the other direction will have to battle headwinds and those flights will take a lot longer.

I wonder how these same winds will affect SQ21/22...
