World's Worst Terminal?
Captain Scott wrote "My god, this is a bloody awful place" about Antarctica because Heathrow and in particular Terminal 5 bad not been built then. Admittedly it comes as a shock to wind up there after departing Changi or Chep Lak Kok but the place has to be the pits by anyone's standards.
Samsung must have rocks in their corporate heads.
Nobody seems to have mentioned the ever increasing amount of advertising in facebook. This would have been the first thing I asked about had I been doing the research

More reasons to avoid Heathrow
I have given up on Heathrow. It is a place to avoid, horrendous taxes and fees, massive long hikes in that "bloody awful place" T5. The contrast with Singapore and Hong Kong where I usually transit it marked. Two of the world's best airports, one of the worst. Even the attitude of the security staff contrasts badly, not to mention the efficiency of border control.
