The Tube connections are really handy for getting out and into the heart of the city. Very efficient.

Third runway at Heathrow

Now that I see a satellite picture of Heathrow I see just how easy it would be to add a third runway the other side of the Bath Road. Do th British want to keep a place in the Top Ten of European flight centers or not? Get on with it Brits!

airside trolleys

Modern airports provide airside trolleys, which fit inside toilet cubicles for security. Heathrow is too mean. This is an important facility for mothers carrying necessities for small children and for elderly passengers who find the trolleys convenient to lean on, while wheeling their cabin luggage and duty free purchases. I have heard LHR staff comment that they are fed up with collecting and stacking the trolleys. Apparently this is not a problem for staff at Amsterdam, Zurich and other modern, customer friendly airports.

re: HEATHROW DE LONDRES UN AEROPUERTO PROFESIONAL

Reply to @ELICE: en mi experiencia, el ΓΊnica problema serio con Heathrow es la espera larga en las aduanas. En otros aspectos, me parece un buen aeropuerto, y es fΓ‘cil llegar al centro de Londres desde allΓ­.

HEATHROW DE LONDRES UN AEROPUERTO PROFESIONAL

Como pasajero, las veces que me ha tocado visitar este aeropuerto, siempre destaca un aire de profesionalidad y buen hacer. Sabemos que tiene un factor en contra que cuando nos pueden sorprender las inclemencias.

Scars

This is obviously an old photo (pre 17Jan) as you can clearly see the scars left by the undercarriage and engines of the BA38 on the grass area. It shows as a very bright green set of 'tracks'. Could google send their satellite over LHR again soon to see them please?

Boeing 777 runway undershoot

On Thursday 17 January 2008, British Airways flight 38, a Boeing 777 inbound from Beijing, landed short of the runway at Heathrow with its gear not fully deployed -- there's some indication that the plane had a power loss. There were only minor injuries, and the airport continued operations using its other runway. Wikipedia is already on top of the story:

New terminal

In March 2008, Heathrow will be opening its new Terminal 5, with 112 stores and restaurants (designed to handle traffic at the 2012 Olympics). There's a virtual tour at the airport's web site:
