Beergate: A Summary

Two males were observed removing free beer (estimated to be c.20 cans of an unknown brewer) from the First Lounge (South) at London Heathrow's Terminal 5 on Friday 30th June 2017 between the hours of noon and approximately 17:00. The two men are white and probably have in excess of 1600 Tier Points.

200 outraged posts on an airline-related online forum then wasted at least 1000 man-hours of British industry at a cost of over £100 due to middle-ranking executives having not much better to do than comment on this feat of potential drinking whilst being flown.

Anybody with any news on this treasonable crime should not bother calling CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111. A reward of 6 cans of beer is available should the original beer cans be recovered.

Police are uninterested in talking to anyone in the vicinity at the time.

Any BREAKING NEWS on this front-page story will be added to this wiki immediately it happens

Ooh, mentioned in the same breath as @corporate-wage-slave, you've made my day although I have just worked my way through a rather large bowl of chocolate ice cream in the CCR. Having said that, I did ask for it politely.
golfmad is online now

Also LAS is now loaded again with drink in LAS, previously it was loaded for the whole rotation at LHR.
The thread was around not so long ago. It may have been old yes it was mentioned it is now restocked at LAS but do you expect louts who do this to read all of the thread or just the bad bits . My attempt at dry humor was obviously missed
