I agree totally with this!

I went to Canada via London Heathrow 2 weeks ago and was delayed on the way to canada by approx 30 mins and coming back last saturday delayed again by 1 hr after landing and then delayed on flight out to dublin by about 20 mins. Was really sickening this being my first time to heathrow!

I guess its just the amount of planes coming in and out that slows things up! There was 6 planes in front of ours and 10 behind us when we were on the runway on Saturday!
