7:45 worth noting though that the UK isn't particularly big so it's really not an issue that there aren't many domestic flights to Heathrow. Only 3 of those 8 domestic destinations are in England - Leeds, Newcastle and Manchester - and they're all in the north. Nobody wants to fly from, say, Southampton, Norwich or Bristol to London because what's the point when you could drive or get a train that takes less than 2 hours?

Personally, I prefer flying to Amsterdam from the UK to catch a connecting flight rather than going through Heathrow due to it being a chaotic mess to travel from one part to the other. Amsterdam Airport is much easier to navigate.

@ 7:50 the reason Heathrow is poorly connected to other UK cities by airports is because London is much better connected to other UK cities by train than cities in the US are to eachother

Newcastle International Airport in the north east of England charges £4.00 just to drive in , drop off and drive out. The bus layby which is 300 yards from the terminal building, but on the road just outside the airport grounds is free, apart from "No Parking" lines on the road surface so most cars drop off at the bus layby, much to the annoyance of the bus drivers .

Here in the UK we do call London Heathrom (LHR), by the affectionate name, Theif-Row. & the video shows why. The @Yellow Brick Road' at Heathrow, has become infamous & the local British will bring their own supplies of subsistance to the airport before they arrive. I have not been there since before Terminal 5 & that debacle opened, yet I would suggest NOT to return to a nationalised, dump of an airport. As I am sure, so many visitors of my age, will remember.

Heathrow is 1 of at least 4 that can be used for travelling to/from London, much as it was the case (no longer I think) in Tokyo with Narita as the international hub and Haneda as the mainly domestic one. It is also quite busy and can't handle many more flights without the need of expanding, which as you point out in case it is considered (I don't know if it's even physically possible but lets assume it is) it will be looked from the business perspective.

This makes me wonder how the heck do airlines make profit if they have to pay the following. Fuel cost, airport gate cost, departure and landing tax, passenger catering, plane insurance, maintenance, staff, airplane purchase cost, other contingency cost in case there are delays and flight cancellations. How the heck do they make money especially if they sell flights so cheap ?

The reason why heathrow doesn't do short flights is because there is 4 other airports in london, meaning if you wanted short haul you can fly from somewhere else, and heathrow, being the largest, can keep its capacity by linking cross atlantic.

You did not mention the huge price of each takeoff and landing slot pair which airlines need to buy before even starting to fly to LHR. These slot pairs cost millions and no doubt increase the airport bottom line.

The restaurants at my local airport offers a discount to arriving passengers--because literally nobody connects through it. Its most common flights are tiny, hour-long jaunts across a mountain range to the state's biggest city, and it is so small it is easy to show up very close to boarding time and still get through security and walk to the gate. There are, like, four gates. I think it stays open due to tax money. On the plus side, you can check an entire case of wine for free.

sure Heathrow has only a few domestic destinations, but what about the other airports in the London systmem? Gatwick, London City, Luton? I'm guessing they cover more of those domestic destinations. also, there are more options for getting to the other cities - train, bus, driving...if you're in mainland Europe, you are much more limited in ways to get to the UK - ferry maybe? other the driving the Chunnel and flying

Can I just add that our country is so small that having Heathrow connect to every other airport here just wouldn't make economical sense. It's about 400 odd miles to Edinburgh in Scotland, a distance which in countries like the U.S, Canada, China and Russia is nothing. We can easily get around here by just getting on the motorway (highway) or getting the train.
