Wow. Last night, Shannon and I excitedly made our flight reservations for a Christmas in London; this morning, we awoke to news that the entire world of British air travel has been rocked. My sister and her kids flew back from London to New York last week for a vacation, but unfortunately my brother-in-law was scheduled to fly back tomorrow… he managed to get onto a flight this afternoon, and is now sitting in what he describes as an empty Heathrow terminal waiting to find out if his flight will get out at all. What a nightmare, for trans-Atlantic travelers and for airlines on the whole.
