Having just moved back to the States from London, I have a few questions about LCY. It seems to me that LCY is an "overlooked" airport; when I traveled with friends and colleagues from London, we rarely (if ever) considered it.
First of all, it seems like only smaller aircraft can serve LCY. Is this due to a runway or noise restriction? I also have heard that the runway was extended in the 1990s. What service was possible prior to this extension?
Second, are there any plans to expand the airport even further? This seems doubtful, given its location. Transportation is also limited to taxis, if I am not mistaken. Will we see any changes in the future? Or are business travelers content to have limited service at LCY? Thanks for the info.
