Flew LHR DLM. Out 6th back last night. T5 quiet but not as empty as I thought last week. Most people wearing masks, apart from a few young women who had their masks off to take selfies. Some BA CC walking around with masks around their necks, but mostly masked up. Outbound about two thirds full, back almost full.
BA catering was bottle of water, packet of crisps, biscuit.
Arrival at T5B last night, escalators u/s, so dozens crammed into lifts, so much for social distancing during rest of airport/ flight experience.
Border force staff just asked where we had come from, no checking of online entry form.
In Turkey, had temperature checked each time we entered hotel, most restaurants, coaches and on entering terminal at DLM. Must have had temperature checked about 50 times during week.

Talking to one of our guys yesterday - flew in to Venice from LHR with BA - LHR T5 quiet, flight 100% full but "very subdued" - everyone masked. Venice Airport totally empty but all buses etc running pretty much as normal

Thought the boarding by rows at LHR wasn't well organised - an electronic display rather than a BA girl yelling her head off would have helped - but disembarking by sets of 6 rows was apparently remarkably civilised

A friend flew to Corfu from Leeds/Bradford this morning. I quote "Plane was full. Some people cannot understand simple instructions like "Please keep your mask on" and "Don't queue for the toilet"!"

If you can't queue for the toilet then the cabin crew should be handing out numbered tickets! "Number 103 for the forward toilet please", etc. It is completely ridiculous and lacking all logic to seriously expect people not to queue for the toilets so as to ensure their rightful turn.

Flew EDI to LHR with BA yesterday. They started boarding by seat row from the back but by the time they got to row 20 they gave up and it became the usual scrum to get on.

I find the same in supermarkets. Outside, people dutifully observe the distance markers but, once inside, revert to standard behaviour. The other week I was at petrol station and they have installed a Stop/Go traffic light at the door that counts people in and out. When I got there it was red. So I stopped. A man asked me if I was waiting, I started to say, "I'm waiting for the green light" but after "I'm waiting ..." he overtook me and went straight into the shop with no mask on.

It's crazy, either do it, or not. These half-arsed efforts don't serve anyone at all.

Shopping centre this afternoon, dutifully following the one-way arrows (very large, very obvious) like a good boy and there were groups of several people coming the opposite way seemingly oblivious to the cross-contamination risk. Strangely they were either ch*vs or other persons new to these shores. Couldn't care less it would seem. Makes me mad, but you can't change stupid, you only waste your time and energy trying to explain.
