(Not so) Upper Crust

Sat, 19 May 2007

Pondering what to do at Gatwick airport whilst waiting to fly out, what better than to sit down and ponder life over a pleasant coffee. OK, I haven't been to Gatwick for a while and, well, its a shambles of an excuse for an international airport. The only bonus being that you really do step off the train and in to departures. I must also congratulate US Airways on an excellent web check-in service that genuinely did mean zero queueing at the check-in desk.

Anyway, back to that coffee. Besides there being no "real" coffee houses (Starbucks, Costa, Nero etc etc), Upper Crust generally seems to do, if nothing else, a satisfactory job. Well not this time. A row of filthy coffee machines, pre-prepared "McDonalds style" coffee (and thats doing an injustice to McDonalds coffee which is half decent), rotting fruit and general mess. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE (which you might just catch there).
