Driving into the drop of zone in T5 this morning, I noticed 2 areas for smokers. One was the semi enclosed smokers hut clearly sign posted for smokers – naturally this was empty, but the second “smoking sign” was between entrance doors with no encloses area.
The number of uniformed staff (not only BA) clearly out numbered the number of passengers. I asked a policeman on traffic duty about the smoking and he said that staff didn’t want their clothes to smell, hence why they didn’t use the enclosed area – along with, what do you expect on such a nice day!
thankfully the police don’t take such a relaxed view over parking outside the terminal!!!
