The nightmare that is Heathrow Airport
16 August, 2007
Since I’ll be traveling to Heathrow later this year, these two articles caught my eye:
- Braving Heathrow more stressful than sky-diving
- Behind the scenes at Heathrow
- Every flight delayed today
British Airways’ own internal figures show that fewer than a third of its flights – 29 per cent – currently leave on time. And only 60 per cent leave within 15 minutes of their scheduled departure time, one of the worst performances among major airlines.
Passengers waited a staggering 2,434 years in total at Heathrow last year because of flight delays.
