Travelling with luggage? Not on British Airways today!


In another huge blow to Heathrow’s reputation as a reasonable place to travel through, there has been a catastrophic failure of the baggage handling facilities at Terminal 4. British Airways has responded by prohibiting checked luggage on almost all flights that they operate to or from Terminal 4. That’s right – no checked bags! Of course, there are the usual exceptions for their most frequent fliers and passengers in first and business classes, but a limit like this is is pretty drastic.

It is supposed to get better over the next couple days, but Heathrow keeps losing its respect (what little it has left) as the world’s connecting point for air travel. Can’t wait for my trip through there later this year.
