Heathrow Terminal 1 We usually avoid flying from Heathrow as our previous experiences have been awful. Firstly the Meet and Greet Purple parking helped as we were able to arrive virtually at the terminal door. The next pleasant surprise was that the Air New Zealand check in desk was just to the...

In the last twelve months I have used this airport to fly to New York, with my hubby. The airline that I used was British Airway and for long haul flights, they use Terminal 4. Heathrow Airport may not be one of the largest airports in the world, but it is one of the busiest. I will be...

ProClean, easy to get around

Consnone

Heathrow Terminal 5 is the most anticipated building to be made. This project cost over £4 Billion to make and that £4 BN is worth it! We flew from Terminal 5 a week after it had opened and I must say what a tremendous site this building is! Its is made from Steel and Glass, it has quick check in...

ProVery nice, clean airport

ConsSome staff a little rude

Isn't it so true? Everybody follows one passenger - the first off the plane - when they arrive at Heathrow. And if this person goes the wrong way, you're all stuffed! The problem is, Heathrow is huge. There are people everywhere, with confusing corridoors and passageways. That combined with the...

ConsSevere lack of toilets and seats in waiting area

I am not impressed with Heathrow Airport at all. I have just used Terminal 3 to get my flight to Tokyo and have not enjoyed using the airport one bit. On arrival at the Terminal I made my way into the check in area, to be fair there were no problems there, I managed to get a trolley for my...

ProGreat VIP lounge.

ConsNone to mention

After checking out of the 4 star Hilton Heathrow, prior to my trans-Atlantic crossing to, my main concern was not to blow my 'spending money' in the tax free haven that is the departure areas. In fact this had been a fear that I had pre-assessed before leaving my home town of Norwich, and I had...

ConsDirty and unorganised

Ok. I have no statistics to back up my opinion here. All I have is my opinion based on my experience. Heathrow could have been a much better place. When I first arrived in Heathrow over 10 years ago, first thing I noticed was the amount of people squeezed into such a cramp place. The arrival hall...

Heathrow has almost become like home for me in the past year, considering the number of stamps in my passport.

Heathrow is not only London's biggest airport, but the world's busiest! Leave plenty of time to catch your flight, especially on Friday nights, Sunday nights, and Monday mornings. The airport has four terminals. 1, 2 and three are very close together, whilst terminal 4 is a short bus ride away...
