Arrival at the airport today was interesting. There are people milling about like cattle in the car parking structure as they cannot get into the terminal. The terminal is simply full. BA -- who has staffed the parking area with their own employees as BAA (the company who runs the airport) can't be bothered -- advised that in all liklihood they could simply not get me onto the plane today and have rebooked the next available which turns out to be Wednesday the 16th at 11am.
The good news, is the "Home Office" here in the UK has lifted the security requirements to a large degree. For reasons unclear to me however, BAA (not BA, but the company who runs the airport) has declared they won't implement the lower security until tomorrow. According to their spoksman, they are already quite backed up from the stringent security requirements and feel that the best way to speed up the process of catching up would be to continue those requirements until tomorrow at 4am.
I didn't quite follow that logic either, but they don't seem care a bit.
