Heathrow an amazing airport with over 1,000 “traffic movements” per day, equalling almost 70 million passengers in 2011!

The airport has changed tremendously and mostly very postively since my first visit in 1978, which was my first trip alone abroad: My suitcase didn’t make it to Bremen with me but that just toughened me for the next few hundred flights:-) Nevertheless, I try to avoid Heathrow unless I’m going to south east England.

The first place I experienced retina scanners for passing through ticket control, and it was on a domestic flight:-(

    Super capture …

  • Tom, thank you! A few minutes before, we’d hardly hit the ground and turned off the main runway and I looked back and could see at least the next four or five coming in behind us – a bit scary. Cheers, Kasia
