I am pretty sure it was weather related as ontime for the day was appaling. I flew IAH>EWR and then after getting bumped from the LGW flight flew to MAN and then took the bus down to London. The IAH leg was extremely turbulent, and as it was oversold I ended up in 44d and let's just say that the back of the 777 isn't very comfie in Turbulence. Managed to get upfront for the EWR>MAN leg, and then spoiled it by taking the coach bus to London

Why would one take a coach from MAN to LGW, or London in general? Unless it's drastically changed in the last decade, trains (Sunday excepted) are usually faster and less prone to traffic. The M5/1 to M23 trip by road alone can take several hours, for a less than one hour drive, under a myriad of conditions.
