Healthy loads on LHR to what I’ve heard… consistently 30-50 pax.

Flybe don't operate to LHR from NCL on Saturday. It's £57-99 for this afternoons flight.

The £404 single for tomorrow (Saturday) is on British Airways.

" don't know why anyone uses them at those prices, unless it is all businessmen on expenses."

Exactly

Exactly
So we have the choice of a silly priced airline or an unreliable one to get to our capital city.

Most people use the train - its faster centre to centre and a lot less standing inline

Silly price is for short notice. And if you want to get a train to London from Newcastle this Saturday there are more flights with seats than trains. No trains with seats between 06.00 and 11.58.

​​​​​​​and potentially a lot more standing on the train...

On the train I don't have to stand around, go through security, stand around, board, arrive and then stand around waiting for luggage etc teh seats are better and you can upgrade to First using SEAT FROG for as little as £10 somedays

LHR-EDi is just about equal, LHR-ABZ definitely favours the plane but within England unless you are connecting at LHR the train wins every time IMHO

Checked in on line…30 mins to airport..arrived airport 45 mins before departure.Dropped off (£4)
No issues at all through security..
Left on time arrived Heathrow 10 mins early! 45 mins flying time..
Connected on schedule for a long haul..

Total time from leaving home to arrive at connecting departing gate was..just under 2.25. (1 hour delay on departing flight sadly &#128577

Ok I was lucky? But still..if you are connecting..through terminal 5 ..no real complaints.
Plus I realise the costs..but an interline ticket..no brainier really!

Sometimes it's not the fault of NCL for losing passengers.
I'm flying from LHR as I've had it with connections.
With my last 3 trips, 2 of them involved running as fast as possible through connecting airports and hoping there were no bolshy staff at the x-rays which are becoming more and more common to catch a connection, and the 3rd, at AMS, had a cancelled flight due to weather so can't complain about that, but the KLM staff at AMS said I would have to wait 9 hours for the next flight as the midday flight was fully booked.
When I complained and made a fuss a seat miraculously appeared. No-one like being lied to.
So now 1 long flight which can be as late as it wants with no problems attached.

A lot(most) airlines will hold or delay departures if a number of passengers(baggage) are delayed due to late connecting?

British Rail..doesn’t do that? 🤪
