So, were the passengers sent to London on a bus (well, two buses)?
Think I would rather take a train.
Somewhat amusingly, last week Sundays BA490 from GIB
was diverted to Bournemouth - a whole ooh.... 80 miles from LHR
, so somewhat closer than CWL
. The passengers were not bussed up - apparently they were told that no bus company was willing to do it - instead they were all overnighted in the Bournemouth Marriott and then flown to LHR
the next day.
So not a foregone conclusion that they would have been bussed, especially as I gather the road networks are still somewhat treacherous in large parts of the UK.
