5.5 hours is a long time to voluntarily spend sat at an airport
i have only been at Heathrow once, albeit travelling economy, we thought we had lots of time but lineups to go through security were so long and filled with hundreds of stressed out travellers who were lined up knowing that their flights had departed without them.
Of course we would have preferred boarding this time, but imagine no preferences with security. I think I would rather relax and check out a couple of the lounges, which will be a real treat for us.
but thanks for the suggestion.
