              This explains why London Heathrow was my worst airport experience except maybe Chuuk.

                  I've never been to an airport where you don't have to walk through duty free?

                      Considering most of the video is about Heathrow it makes it more confusing than usual that is in dollars 😭😭 Surely most of the people that view this channel can't be from one country so just talk about it in the currency from the relevant country, the world is so much bigger than the USA

                        Because the dollar is the most used unit of currency in the world.

                        Thank you Wendover for this video!!! Now it makes sense as to why I needed to transit through Amsterdam when I wanted to fly from London to Manchester. #notkidding.

                          Nice info. I am an Avid traveler. My opinion Worst airport - Frankfurt. Employees treat travelers like thrash. Best Airport - Indira Gandhi International Airport , Delhi India. Travelers are treated like Kings. Food court is awesome , shopping to fantastic, and believe me it is the cleanest.

                                              The only thing I ever buy at an airport is food to eat at a sit-down restaurant, that way I won't be hungry on flights and have to subject myself to bad airline food.

                                                U didn’t mention that a huge source of their profit comes from flight refunds as they refund a little bit of the money

                                                Also, although technically Stansted and East Midlands are "municipal", the municipality is Manchester which isn't near either.

                                                  Ok so I live in the UK and I've been to Heathrow loads? there are loads of other Airports in London that can take you to the uk airports, people dont care that Heathrow doesnt have much travel to the UK (but those 8 airports are the main ones anyway) and it makes loads of money as you say. Very impressive

                                                      Awesome make security check in as quick as possible so people spend more time at the airport making them spend more... seems like security is second on the list in priority

                                                        You have to remember though that Heathrow is fairly central in the UK there isn’t much point running 10-20 minute flights, take London stansted airport for example, stansted is only (roughly) 42 miles from Heathrow. It makes a lot of sense for Amsterdam to have flights to different parts of the UK because it’s quickest and (usually) cheaper to fly from Amsterdam too Heathrow, it’s expensive and inefficient to run flights nationally which is why Heathrow only runs a certain amount.

                                                          There's four airports in London, no one needs to go through Heathrow

Your number throughout the entire video are wrong and too low by multiples. You are entirely wrong about the privitization of Airports in US. All of them are privately owned because the US Government owns no companies and can't own companies. Stop lying about dumb shit and fact check.
