I dunno usually JFK (from what my uncle in NYC) says is that they plow a few air strips for incoming planes delay until they get enough for planes that go out (in schedule order) then they do that until all of the air lanes are plowed of snow and gritted.Heathrow only has 2 runways remember. And it manages more aircraft movement. Whenever snow happened around London, Heathrow is always severely hit because of how busy the airport just generally is. Its been 3 days of snow on and off near enough and because Heathrow runs at near enough full capacity they just don't have the room to reschedule the delayed flights. They can't just slot them in at Heathrow or they'll be catching up for an age.
of course I was just saying what my uncle told me how JFK does it. I know that heathrow is a completely different situation.
You don't care about them but you have the opinion that Heathrow officials aren't doing the best job they can compared to US airport officials though???
Never said that. though I should have clarified that I don't know or care about airports and their snow removal in general. been to JFK stuck for 4 days because of the storm in 08 wouldn't believe how bitchy I got.
its not hard with snow and airports, you delay flights for 6 hours, you plow it, you put down Ice Melt with a mix of gravel, start the flights back up
its not hard I am surprised neither US or UK has figured this out its freaking 2013. though the scandinavian countries have it down hmmm...
Who are you lying to.
myself I know. it really conflicts with my cynical and pessimistic nature.but at least im trying and thats (what I guess) counts,
