LHR (London Heathrow) Flight Timetable not working and they are not allowing customers into the Departure Lounges until 4 hours before take-off time

The BAA Heathrow Flight Timetable on the website is not working due to the conditions and the number of people trying to access it. Customers are also being refused entry to the Departures Lounge until 4 hours before the flight. Not the best way of keeping customers happy.

News from yesterday – This is twice in recent weeks that we’ve blogged about The Today Programme on BBC Radio 4.

Presenter John Humphrys interviewed Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, in his first face-to-face broadcast interview since his release from prison on bail. As you would expect Assange defended his organisation and explained why he is fighting extradition to Sweden over sexual assault allegations.

He said he believed the most probable explanation for the allegations was that two women “found out that they were mutual lovers of mine and they had unprotected sex and they got into a tizzy about whether there was a possibility of sexually transmitted diseases“.

Assange’s use of the word “tizzy” is unlikely to do him any favours, since it makes it sound like he is not treating a serious issue with the amount of concern he should be.

It was a “ridiculous thing to go to the police about,” he added.

In a wide-ranging interview, he denied that the leaks had prevented diplomats from being able to operate.

People on Twitter have been angered at the fact that Humphreys asked Assange how many women he slept with, even though this does not directly relate to the reason he was on the programme.

It has also been revealed that the Wikileaks App has been removed from the Apple App Store.
