Was the flight noticeably more turbulent given the tailwinds? I would have thought it would be, but interested to know.

At this relatively late stage I'd probably try to do something like booking to Boston or Washington on the way out, and from New York on the way back. Or VV. I am not sure how old your kids are but I...

A Lufthansa went around on the north runway but landed safely on the southern runway a few minutes later. An Iberia also went around but went off straight to Manchester.

I asked about this on a separate thread - a bit earlier winds were I think 20kts from the south gusting to 35kts. Only saw two go-around though. Seems to have died down a bit now.

The current Metar for Heathrow (930am) is showing winds from the south at 19kts gusting to 32kts. Will crosswinds like that present any problems for planes trying to land/take off?

Did you check that there was no room in the Y bin near you, and then come back to CE? Or did you put it without checking, on the assumption that there would be no room?

Not wishing to minimise the trauma this must have caused (it would have terrified me) but £2000 in vouchers and a wine hamper feels not too bad an offer?
