So it looks like the great hope of London airports Terminal 5 has made a ridiculously dumb mistake before its even opened. No passenger accessible power outlets.
In a brand new terminal built in the 21st century, BAA has managed to build departure waiting areas with not a single passenger-accessible power outlet. Rows and rows of hard plastic benches with armrests which prevent you from lying down--kind of makes you feel like you're in a Greyhound bus terminal and not a single power outlet.
Because no one these days travels with a laptop. good work Heathrow.
