It is now extremely doubtful if we're going to get away on time, if at all. Air NZ is now warning their passengers that if they choose to fly (we're going via LAX) then Air NZ will not be responsible for any accommodation or other help if we get stranded half-way. They are offering a refund on the tickets, which is I suppose quite reasonable, but I want to see my daughter and my Dad.
We'll just have to wait and see, but the latest news from Heathrow doesn't look too good; they're saying that any delays will continue well past the 25th. Bugger.
How is it every year the UK gets caught out.

Airports in Norway, Sweden, Finland and even Russia are managing to stay open, but not good old blighty. The spirit of Colonel Blimp is alive and well, "Don't worry Lads, we'll muddle through somehow".
Here's a nice picture to cheer me up.
