London Heathrow T5 terminal

It is now just a few months until the planned opening of British Airways' new T5 terminal at London Heathrow (LHR).

In the past month I've gotten a couple of invites for a sneak peek. Unfortunately both were for set dates when I was unable to be in London. In the meantime BA have a special website with some information and pics.

There are rumours of industrial action to coincide with the terminal opening. Let's hope that does not eventuate.
Nonetheless I planned some trips to UK to avoid that same week - just in case the airport is more chaotic than normal.
For everyone flying to/from/through London Heathrow be sure to check which terminal your flight uses. Not only will British Airways flights be shifting terminals (not just to T5 but some also to T3), but so will many other airlines' flights over the next year or so.
