    Yes, this flight for me occurred yesterday! With all of issues at Heathrow (snow, no enough support crew, and several de-icing machines being out of commission) coupled with my changing schedules end, this was my third attempt at getting out of Heathrow!

    That being said:
    A bit of mild chop over England & Scotland.
    Took one of the typical northern tracks westward.
    Seatbelt sign remained off until we approached Greenland then stayed on for the next 1 hr 45 minutes until we made landfall at Newfoundland (and then a bit longer).
    Would describe the turbulence as being mild-to-"maybe" moderate bumps (first meal cabin service was over) but the FAs were still up and moving. Most of the awake passengers were also milling around a bit much.
    Seatbelt sign came on again after we started passing over the Great Lakes and remained on for the balance of the flight.
    Interesting was that until we passed Chicago, we remained at FL320 - seemed a bit odd for a 777-300ER - but I'll defer to the professionals flying and doing the route planning!
    We did increase to FL360 to probably pass over some turbulence over IL & MO.
    Side note was a few days earlier from TLV to LHR, the BA 777-200LR spent about half of the cruise at FL380 and then FL400.
