Reply To: Short Haul flights from B gates at LHR and the sprint though the tunnel

Back to Forum


I can walk the tunnel from F lounge to C gates in 17 minutes…

I have been caught out though when a late boarding call for a short haul leaves from B / C.

I can understand when short haul gates do not become live 1 hour before departure as they can turn around in around 40 minutes. However, a longhaul must need way longer to spin round so I do not understand why long haul gates are sometimes left to the last minute.

Has anyone been badly caught out by a late gate announcement…?
