Heathrow, Beijing: A tale of 2 airports

June 12, 2008

Ever since it opened recently, Terminal 5 of London's Heathrow Airport has been plagued with failures.

On the other side of the globe, Terminal 3 in Beijing, which opened for full operations just one day before Terminal 5, has been operating almost without a glitch.

The media, unsurprisingly, have feasted upon the failures of T5 in London, while neglecting the successes of T3 in Beijing.
