Just wondering whether anyone in the group is staying near Heathrow on the 1st (night before departure), and if so, whether they'd fancy meeting up for a bite to eat and/or a drink.
I will not be, but I am looking forward to the trip!
Passport? Check! Visa? Check! Legs???? Mmmmm, need to get out on my bike!
I live near the airport so am travelling up on the day. That said does anyone fancy meeting up in the terminal before check-in so we can sit together on the plane?
I was thinking about 2.5 hours before the flight which is 8:20 which balances queuing time with not having an excessive amount of time hanging around the terminal.
Hi all, meeting up at Heathrow -- either before or after check-in -- would be great. As I'll be staying close by I can make any suggested time (within reason of course!), 8:20 as suggested would be fine. Does one of you know Terminal 4 well enough to suggest somewhere to meet -- the queue for check-in may not be specific enough (unless we all wear our helmets)? Looking forward to meeting you all.
Hi All, There is a large bar/restaurant called the Bridge Bar that does reasonable breakfast (for an airport.). I suggest that for those that can fix a time/meet by chance at check in, great, for anyone delayed if we all head for the Bridge Bar, plan to meet up 8:45-9:00am that would probably work?
Happy for any other suggestions (but not wearing my helmet! :) )
Hi, I found a (very slow to load) map on the airport website which shows a Caffe Nero on the pre check-in side next to the entrance to the terminal & opposite WH Smith. I suggest that as the first meeting point at say 8:15 (which gives us the chance to book seats together - if we get on!) with plans B (check-in) & C (Bridge Bar airside) as above. I've got an Exodus tag on my case from a previous holiday if anyone else has one bring it along. Less conspicuous than a helmet how about wearing / carrying our cycle mitts? Of course in an old spy movie one would have a red rose in their lapel and a copy of the Times! Pete
I like Pete's plan so will either meet you outside the coffee shop or by the Bridge bar depending upon my journey. I have an exodus bag tag so will put that on my hand luggage.
See you at Heathrow!!
Hi all, excellent, 8:15 outside the coffee shop it is. I'll have an exodus tag on my case too. Am obviously gutted that you turned down the option of wearing your helmets at Heathrow whilst queueing for the flight, but will try to get over the disappointment. Zan, I'm staying at the Radisson Blu at Heathrow-- which includes my parking (got it as a 'mystery hotel' booking which makes it cheapish), will send you my mobile no if you do think you might be in the area Fri evening too. Looking forward to the holidays and to meeting you all!
I'll have to ask Costa if I can get some commission for introducing potential customers!
See you on Saturday
Has anyone tried to check in online? Just wondering whether that's a good option?
Me too. Looks like we may be the only ones willing to talk to each other as no one else has joined the forum....
