A friend of mine is travelling to England in 2 weeks and is quite undecided about which airport he wants to fly into. I have no clue about the airport situation in England and thought I'd help him out by asking for some help on the congestion or ease with which one can go through either airport. Jm operates their A340 into LHR because they say it makes for easier travel, BA operates a 777 into LGW saying it makes for easier passage too. If any of you guys have any knowledge of either or both airports could you let me know. Thanks in advance.

i fly out of London frequently, and would always use LGW out of choice. LHR is just too congested, long holds to land and waits to depart are not uncommon. More often than not I am in and out of LGW much quicker. LHR is a little better for transfers to London, but then if you'va already flown 5,000 miles what's a few more?
