Fly on Brazil's Varig (0171-629 5824), which has three flights a week each way between Heathrow and the Danish capital. Not only is the fare of pounds 135 return (including tax) great value, you also get much more legroom and better service than on an ordinary short-haul flight, as it is an extension of the flight from Rio.
