This could be interesting. Am en route to Dublin for work today – I love an early flight. The first part of the plan came off ok: the waking up at 6:30 bit. Getting to Victoria station was straightforward. Getting the quarter-hourly Gatwick Express? Am not sure whether it’s Sod’s Law, or comeuppance for my failure to check the website to ensure that the quarter-hourly service which you pay a premium for is in fact running every 15 minutes.
It’s all ok though – they’ve apologised for the late running.
This ought to be interesting.

Update: once again, published departure time turns out to be an exercise in extreme optimism. Flight delayed half an hour, and everyone’s a winner. Of some description.
