I flew into the new terminal on Sunday evening. The place was completely deserted. The new terminal reminds me of Oslo's airport. Lots of glass and exposed piping and supports everywhere. Electrically nothing seemed to work at all but that did mean that the car park was free.

Not sure how long the interchange plaza with the fountains will last. Prob only till the Olympics then it'll be covered over with express coffee outlets. The signage from the termial was awful, not one sign for central London!

I'm impressed and disappointed all at the same time.

How have you found it so far?

We flew from LHR Terminal 5 to Berlin-Tegel yesterday (Monday 31mar08). Everything went smoothly forr us apart from the boarding gate not being available on the Departures board when we looked for it.

I was really impressed with the friendliness of the BA agent who checked us in. If he was stressed out at all, he was certainly keeping it to himself!.

Our luggage arrived okay although a tour group on the flight found their luggage missing.
