Guess you hit it at the right time! Was rammed for me when I was there. The 90 minutes was an exaggeration I'll be honest. Probably took about an hour to get through the security and immigration. Usually takes about 30 minutes from exiting the aircraft to getting landside after my flight from Amsterdam at Portland with Delta. The experience really put me off using it not to mention that it's a longer journey time for me as well.

So you'd drive 4-5 hours to LHR (which is east, by the way) but not fly 1.5 hours....I'm sure there's logic there somewhere.....

Not been through them but I have been through SFO, LAX and SEA and never had any major delays.

Ahh - joys to come!

You have to allow 2 hours at JFK or MIA - best to avoid if at all possible - it can take less but that's not they way to bet. Smaller US airports are undoubtedly better and friendly -. the welcome at JFK can be worse than Sheremetyevo.................

Try the self service immigration/customs machines at JFK & MIA, work for me every time, through in 35 minutes last time I flew into MIA.

I think they'll have to do more than just 2 months on Newquay!

I don't really think so. If they were launching multi-daily from LGW then I would agree.
This just gives another (welcome) option for flights to/from Cornwall during the busy Summer season and of course the connectivity options

Having said that I've not seen the timings for the new LHR flights - they don't appear to be loaded on ba.com (or skyscanner) yet?

I see this as a rather neat way of demonstrating to the Government that BA can step into such markets and could/would do so in a more meaningful way if Flybe were not to exist.
