DS1 is flying from Geneva tomorrow on a flight due in at 1425, & then he's getting the shuttle bus from Heathrow Central to Reading station. I'm assuming that even if the flight's on time he won't be out in under an hour? I'm driving down from Lancs to pick him up at Reading so I'm trying to work out roughly what time he'll get there.
Buses run every 20 mins & take upwards of 45 mins. Buses after 1525 are at 1535, 1555, 1615 etc, due in at Reading 1648, 1714, 1734 etc.
He's happy to wait at Reading for a while if necessary - would aiming for 1715-1730 be realistic do you think?
the whole trip went really well! no problems driving down, he got the bus from terminal 5 around 3.30 & was having a pint in Reading by 4.30, & I got there about 4.50 - although we were on opposite sides of the station, which is all a building site, so finding each other took a few minutes!
