RE: New Heathrow Expansion Images Released.

Looks nice. But Heathrow is already a chaotic mess. Wait an hour before flight for gate assignment, walk a thousand miles from one end of the terminal to the other, let alone a whole 'nother terminal via tram plus the miles of duty free shopping in the way with passengers cramming the already crowde...
