Where I stayed
Terminal 5 LHR

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

I was due to leave Buckingham and catch the National Coach to LHR terminal 5 at 4 a.m. on Wednesday morning (6th Jan) but it started snowing and the forecast was for more snow so I decided to catch the train down on Tuesday evening. I tried to book into a hotel but everyone else must have decided to do the same thing! The only hotel rooms to be had was a luxury room at the Sofitel for a cost of 198 for the night, I commented that I only wanted a bed for the night and not to buy the place! So an uncomfortable night was spent in terminal 5 with the rest of the drop-outs. The club lounge opened at 5 a.m. so I was able to get cleaned up and have a bit of breakfast.

The flight loaded on time but the pilot decided there was to much ice on the wings so we had to join the queue to be de-iced. We finally took off 70 minutes late of which the pilot made up 60 of them by the time we landed in Nassau
