Can AA be any worse? Apparently so!
In an effort to "better serve their passengers" (and presumably keep Richard Branson in the lifestyle to which he has become accustomed) American Airlines is suspending all direct service to London's Gatwick Airport in favor of the nightmare pictured above, namely London Heathrow. The absolute boneheadedness of this move is further illustrated by the spectacular opening of Heathrow's new Terminal 5. According to the BBC up to 20,000 bags are stranded at the new terminal & British Airways has had to cancel 100's of flights, those that do leave are often doing so without passengers bags! Is that the sound of ice clinking in the Tanqueray & Tonics over at Virgin Atlantic I hear?
