Sadly the carriers (well most of them) want to operate smaller aircraft more frequently. gone are the days of one flight per day to popular destinations. 3,4 or even 5 are the norm. These all require airport space. viz,
Departure holding areas
with larger aircraft (up to a point) then a two runway EGLL would work. Perhaps they could try using the same runway for two A319/737's to take off at the same time. One from the very end, and one from halfway down.
