Apart from the fact that out of my homebase only LHR
would qualify as a transfer point in the UK, I generally try to avoid connecting flights in LHR
, especially if it includes transfers between T1&2 and either T3
OTOH, I connected through LHR
on 13-SEP-2001 = 2 days after 9/11 flying on BD
with return a few days later.
The flight connection center was closed; we had to pickup our luggage after the first leg and make a new check-in and queues at security were long, but we did make it on our flights ...
On the return this even included arriving at T1, check-in at T2
, security check at T2
and then walking back airside to a gate at T1 ...
Carpe diem ! Life is too short to waste your time ! Keep in mind, that today is the first day of the rest of your life !
