Heathrow Airport has closed after authories arrested 21 people in the UK, in relation to an elleged plot to blow up up to ten aircraft, while they are over major cities in the US and UK – hoping to maximise civilian casualities.
The US Department of Homeland Security has set the threat level for flights originating in the UK to “red” – the first time.
Now I’m scheduled to fly into the USA on Saturday. God it is going to be a nightmare with this level of security. Even worse for my friends from London whom I am meeting there.
But still a minor hassle compared to what would have happened if the plot wasn’t stopped. However I see as a temporary measure one can not have any cabin luggage at all, except for a passport and a wallet!
