To me it seems pretty normal. I consider delays up to 30 minutes not really that bad. According to IATA, a plane departing 15minutes after scheduled departure is considered "on time" (long haul; for short haul it's 5 minutes).

Frac! According to Flightstats.com, WW1343 is estimated to arrive 8 minutes early after its 33 minutes late departure. Has it got a hurricane up its arse or something?

I better go.

Nothing out of the ordinary after experiencing delays at Birmingham. I was delayed 6 hours because of fog! Apparently, Birmingham suffers from fog lol
