Default Crisis at Heathrow

Don't think of travelling there during the Olympics.

Quote:
The Home Office has tried to ban Heathrow from informing the public about the full extent of delays at the airport, suggest leaked emails obtained by The Daily Telegraph.

Heathrow approached “breaking” point last week, with passengers left so frustrated by delays that they resorted to storming past officials without showing their documents and slow handclapping staff in immigration halls.

Several times last week delays were reported in Terminal Five of up to two hours.

LHR is a disaster.

I came in from San Francisco last Saturday, in transit to Ireland. After all the security getting on a plane in the USA, I get into London, stay inside the security zones, but they still make you go through security again anyway....a total waste of time, and it was mobbed. Worse still, by that time, I had bought a soft drink, and some wine....which I had to get rid of. Bloody outrageous.
