      You are absolutely wrong about heathrow, It doesn't constantly service the 6 inhabited continents. Your number throughout the entire video are wrong and too low by multiples. You are entirely wrong about the privitization of Airports in US. All of them are privately owned because the US Government owns no companies and can't own companies. Stop lying about dumb shit and fact check.

        I love flying and airports. My favorite airport is Seattle's Sea Tac. Great food, Nice and big and love to hang out at the delta lounge.

            Why do airports always have the worst restaurants? Like it’s just average ones like wagamamas and pret a manger

              I just flew to Branson Airport the other day. Literally everyone I heard on the radio except one guy was a student pilot like my self. Hopefully it doesn’t go under.

                          So that is why us passengers are being fleeced. Heathrow is a vile place, but I am forced to use it instead of much closer airports. I am tempted to start using Amsterdam Schipol via my local airport and save a 4 hour car journey (and a useless "shopping mall" before the gate)

                                  0:46 Heathrow has way more than 650 daily flights, closer to 1300-1500 daily flights

                                      we do have domestic flights to Heathrow. British Airways operates the A320 family from my local airport (NCL) to Heathrow.

                                        But, Heathrow is also one of the few airports in the world with plentiful supply of free drinking water. Also, the UK is super small so there is no reason to have lots of domestic flights. To give an example, it is possible to get from London to Birmingham in about 1h15m by train. So, it makes sense to have an Amsterdam-Birmingham but not a Heathrow-Birmingham flight.

                                          A 330ml coke can is £ 2.99 inside and outside the airport is £0.79. This is how they make money. 😂

                                                Obviously overcharging airport fees, pay the cocksucking TSA to manhandle and fondle paying passengers, and overpriced food vendors.

                                                    I don't find Heathrow to be very expensive to shop into. A lot of franchise shops there have essentially the same prices like in London.

If anyone wants to connect within UK, they will use other nearby international airports such as City (LCY), Gatwick (LGW), Luton (LTN), Stansted (STN), Southend (SEN) or tens of other domestically connected nearby London airports.
