Laker Airways used to operate, DC-10-10 Series LGW to LAX, but of course 
the -10 certainly didn't have the range for an over the pole trip. Their 
fuel stop was in Bangor. Western ran a short lived LGW to DEN service 
with DC-10-10's which neccesitated bumping passengers on flights 
westbound with lots of open seats, due to weight.

Wardair Canada ran transatlantic jet service from YYZ and other Canadian 
points to LGW with 727-100's. It had a scheduled fuel stop in Greenland, 
worked fine, and make a profit. They even used celestial navigation.
