Jet Airways and Virgin expand codeshare

    This codeshare underlines what is wrong with a bigger Heathrow with a new runway and two new terminals, the connection time - probably will be 4 hours at least between flights. Getting from T4 to T3 is bad enough, imagine when you have to go from T4 to T7....all that way from south to north. It's gonna get as big as a dinosaur and die off like them too. This codeshare is hardly seamless.
