Actually due to major engineering works at Victoria over the Christmas New Year period.  All Airports can be affected by such things, so it's hardly an argument for anything.

I disagree. With Heathrow there are options ( Heathrow Express or Piccadilly line ) London City ( DLR or bus even a taxi is not too bad as so central)  . Am not even sure it should be called London Gatwick as it is so far out .

Have a look at the notam 😷

FFS the place is a fxxxxxg shambles, I have never known anywhere so badly run it's almost unbelievable !

Alf Cannan needs to find out why this farce is draining taxpayers money at an alarming rate but is really a shit show !

If you go back to 2006 I bet 100 million has gone into the place !

But there are options for Gatwick as well Southern are still running to London Bridge (and Croydon East) and other operators to non-London destinations (such as Reading) or trans-London ones such as Peterborough.  It's just that, as often happens, a London terminus is closed for planned maintenance during a holiday period.

People really have to abandon this fantasy that the Island 'needs' a Heathrow link, despite having managed without for so long.  City is useful for those doing business in Central London and for those who live central-ish London, but there may be questions over its long-term viability.

I am reliably informed that the airport director wants the airport to only operate 7am to 3pm because of staff issues !

There was a meeting about this today apparently !

But of course he's a moron !

Was this the actual (Acting pulled back from retirement) Director or that balloon on a stick, Spake?

The long term solution is a remote ATC 

TBH the long term solution would have been, to forget trying to be Heathrow on Sea, and concentrate on being an efficient regional airport serving the island ! Somewhere we forgot that, and got excited by direct holidays and longer flights to the Med and beyond and two million plus passengers and terminal shops etc etc ! Now look where we are !
