I went over to T5 as I had some queries for 3 sectors Monday and 2 on Wednesday and couldnt get through on the phones.
WARNINGS OF THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS:
When I left home it was -0.5c, by the time I got to T5 it was -6c. Please drive carefully, the biggest danger are the idiots driving way too fast on the M25 and drivers not realising the dangers of icey roads.
T5 had a very serene atmosphere, could have done with some festive/seasonal cheer. Plenty of BA staff on hand, I had to Q for about an hour to be seen (i had no issue with that under the circumstances). However, quite clearly BA staff could not cope as there was very little common sense being given to relatively minor issues.
Other than that, parking was easy and a few flights were going.
One nice touch was a Captain (whether on purpose or not) standing around speaking to pasengers and answering questions, nice touch.
I will be in T5 for most of tomorrow, so I will provide updates when ever I can.
