Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. "According to the Association of British Insurers many companies now regard travelling with British Airways through Terminal 5 as a foreseeable and avoidable risk - given that almost all destinations can be reached from Heathrow using other airlines.

    "The general view is if you are taking out a policy now, you may well find that your travel insurance won't cover you for lost baggage through the terminal," a spokesman said.

    "That it is because you will already be aware of the problems of the problems at T5 and hardly expect to be covered.

    "The golden rule is you should check with your insurer before taking out a policy and booking through Terminal 5."

  2. The article is grossly inaccurate.

    The golden rule is avoid heathrow if possible; avoid heathrow T5 at all costs.
