I will be arriving on BA 288 on the 25th of December and am having a hell of a time finding way to get into the city. I know I could take a cab but that will cost about as much as I played for the flight, sarcastic of course. Can anyone offer any suggestions? I know I saw a thread about this topic a bit ago, but couldnt seem to find it again. Thank you all in advance.

There may be something operational, but very limited. You're probably looking at 2x fare for taxis, not sure what the standard fare is through. I tried to look at the tfl website for you (http://www.tfl.gov.uk) but it says that information for Christmas day will not be available until mid-December!!!

If you get stuck, come and say hello, will wish you a happy christmas. Im doing a double on Christmas Day in T5.
Indeed, transport appears to be non existent on the 25th December.
I think the Heathrow Express train might be running. It lets me book a ticket with them (Well, get as far as the payment page)

I may just do that. Based on your past, what can I expect interms of load factor for my flight. It leaves on Christmas Eve at about 21:00 local time. Arrives LHR about about 13:00 on Christmas Day. I booked it hoping that it would be fairly light. Here's to wishing.

A black cab for that route won't be that bad.
