I really don’t think LHR need overly worry.

With the introduction of T5, the airport itself has become much more efficient processing aircraft, and delays are down significantly.

There is the beginning of something of a Renaissance at LHR, with much construction which will replace the dowdy image in terminals other than T5 with something rather more innovative.

It is still the largest airport by passenger numbers by a good 10m pax:
