I say Screw people who live their. They have a choice. Living in that area of london is very expensive. if they moved a few miles away they would benifit in two ways. Cheaper housing, and less 'noise'
Many of them may even work at, near for the airport or other related activity. If they dont ike the noise what keeps em there in the first place???!?! Explain that...
T5 is the best thing for Heathrow since T4, and a Thrid runway could soon be on the way.. A 3rd runway is neede as much as the new BA terminal itself.
Virgin and those a T3 complain that their terminal should be updated to cope with the A380, then do it, but BA will be the sole user of T5 and T4 will see no change in Activity, im just curious as to what happens to BA traffic at the other terminals, Florida at T3, and Euro flights at T1!!!
I know that as a short term solution to transfers, BA will shift som Long hauls to T1 in 2003, such as New York!!
But the underlining point is BA, LHR have a long future which has been extended by the construction of T5, and i saysod anyone who is against it, move to somewhere where they used ancient aircraft such as russia! That will be a change from the exteremly quiet 777s and new aircraft... to silly noisy, dirty a/c such as IL-62s, IL-86, IL-76, Tu-154........
That is noise!!
Long Live LHR, T5 and BA!
