No, I definitely didn't mean that, it's more like management taking action before LHR gets converted to new service.

(My dislike of base crew, is another matter. )

If i were to guess, the base crew may have stricter terms in their contracts with regard to crew rest hours on their flights, so this might have played a part in the need to further 'streamline' the service flow to make sure it can be wrapped up in a certain amount of time after take off.
