as far as i'm aware there was never enough capacity planned into T5 to cope with all of BAs needs
Can I ask one simple question?

WTF not?????

What kind of moron (& I use the only because I can't think of a stronger one) has a billion pound terminal built that isn't big enough & has no room for future expansion? The BA board members who agreed to this deal must have the collective brain power of a six week old boiled cabbage.
There isn't enough ground space at that end of the airport to cope with the number of flights, there was always a plan to build a T5D where the ancilliary area east is located but I guess the downturn and the takeover of the BAA has put paid to that for now.

T5C will hopefully help but it's still not enough.
