Not in case of LCY and Crossrail/Elizabeth, ludicrous considering that a branch of Crossrail will go directly below the terminal. The DLR is at the terminal.

Seems a bit silly: duplicating what already exists when increasing connectivity would make more sense. Whose idea was that?

A link to Heathrow, but, regrettably, that's easier said than done. Its the loss of the Heathrow link that almost killed off the airport.

He's going to lie down in front of the bulldozers instead of Boris?

Is this the "brexit boost" that was being mooted about a year or two ago by Heathrow management? Works out at approximately two extra landings and takeoffs/hour. How are the slots allocated, is it...

A lot of zig-zagging for 2005, if much earlier could possibly be a GF routing(?), although even that is stretching credibility! Would love know if I'm wrong.

Of course this nonsense was going on 20+ years ago. Heathrow was declared "full" by the government (who owned and ran it at the time) in 1977, yes 1977.

It needed a third rwy in 1977, instead the...

Anyone suggesting that LHR is NOT full needs a dose of reality.

Not necessaily, MME is on BE's list as well. Who knows, maybe BD regional will be back. Third rwy changes everything, it's also a long way off. Everything will be different then.
