Wondering if anyone can help;

I need to fly Calgary - Europe this Sunday night but can only leave from midnight onwards Saturday night.
Can anyone can tell me what the earliest transatlantic departure time is for Europe from Calgary.
The earliest I have found so far is abt 3pm, arriving 6.20am (Mon) in Manchester

All airlines I have checked fly out late in the day, arriving Monday but I may have missed one.
I tried Calgary airport but they can't give me any flight schedule info for Sunday.

There is a British Airways flight at 9:50 PM (21:50)--flight number 102--that goes nonstop to London Heathrow, arriving at 1:15 PM (13:15) on Monday afternoon.

Sorry, I thought you wanted the latest, not the earliest--my mistake.

The earliest I could find is a flight on United that leaves at 7:40 AM, and gets into Chicago at noon, then connects to a flight that leaves at 4:00 PM and arrives in London Heathrow at 5:55 AM the next day..

What is your objective? Do you need to arrive on Sunday in Europe?

FYI, 99% of all flights out of North America leave relatively late in the day and arrive in the am in Europe. It is bc of the direction the earth rotates. In order to arrive on Sunday you'd need to leave on Saturday evening.

If there is a late flight on Saturday night (ie midnight) I would love to take that
