That's irrelevant at Heathrow, where it's the capacity of the runways and the legal limit on ATMs that determine the number of flights.  Shortening the turnrounds wouldn't make any difference to that.

It's typically an hour or so for a European carrier flying in and out of Heathrow.  For a 747 or A380 getting ready to fly back to a longhaul destination it will be a lot longer, of course.
