    Only 6 for me and none in europe or the US - which is good as I hate flying! The World has given its airports some terrible names!

    5 for me, most recently Frankfurt and Heathrow (Heathrow said through gritted teeth as not exactly keen on it).

    Gavva, have you been through T5 at LHR? It's a really good terminal. I'm going through T1 this morning - horrid! T3 isn't much better either.

    Most of us going out of LHR have to use T3 Tobias as TG & EVA fly from there.

    I'm aware of that, so do BA flights to BKK. Still doesn't change the fact that T5 is a very good terminal

    T3 is OK. Can't say that is anything special but can't think I have had any real bad experience there. That's not to say that some things could be improved but then I expect that could be said of a lot of places.

    I usually fly to Thailand from Brum but there seem to be considerable price differences at the moment, Heathrow being a much cheaper option. Despite the added pain in the nads of getting there etc Heathrow seems to be the way to go for me when I go back to Thailand (hopefully next year)

    Perhaps. Perhaps not. Let's have some fun. I'll put £5 in to the T-UK Charity fund for every Member who correctly guesses which 3 they are. You've got 7 days from today.

    One guess per Member!
