    It won't show the gate number until one hour before flight. So there is plenty time to shopping

    Uberx into Central London is a flat rate of £55. Meet your driver on floor 0, arrivals

    No1 lounge at South Terminal is great for a swift G&T and a relaxing sit down with free wifi

    Spend as little time as possible here - its a disgraceful airport - BAA should hang their heads in shame at the lack of cleaners and general positive vibe!

    How to get over 2 hours of wifi for free: sign in first with chrome, then when the time is up, register again using ie, then again with mozilla, opera etc... you shall not have to pay any thing! Hehe

    Be warned. If you are being picked up by car make sure the driver parks in a carpark or you will get a ticket. Pick up is no longer allowed curb side. No signs but on website

    In my experience always busy. Avoid the concourse and head for a lounge. MyLounge is better than No 1.

    The bag control system has been greatly improved recently. Each person now gets a corner to unload their tray after the scanning.

    When you get to arrivals and need to charge your phone...there's a single plug socket behind the pillar at the barstool closest to the arrival gate at Costa!

    Overcrowded and wifi has strings attached. Train to London often standing room only and insufficient space for luggage.

    Easy direct Thameslink train ride from London Bridge (2 stops) or London St Pancras (overnight 5 stops). For around £7.80 each way when booked in advance or £5.40 each with Two Together Railcard.

    Why would anyone opt to build another runway here, when their passport queues currently stretch almost back to the airbridges? No capacity for their existing traffic! So frustrating. Waited 45 mins

    The north terminal airport concierge desk has a SIM cutter, should you need a micro-SIM. Also, sells tickets for the Airline to Oxford.

    North terminal check in level you can go out on to the outside terrace for a cigarette before going through security, it's the last chance once you go into the departure lounge there is no smoking.
