thread also for 2 days this week, I was helping out on the opening of
a monster 700 bedroom hotel in heathrow. dual branded (crowne plaza / holiday inn express fact fans) it's huge and it took 3 of us 2 days to see 2/3rds of the guestrooms. the whole thing just goes on and on forever, it'll be the second largest hotel in the UK in our portfolio.

Anyway, if there was a massive delay it'd be enough for just slightly less than the people in a single airbus A380. and holds less than half of 1 percent of the people who fly in or out of heathrow on a given day.

permalink flippin' heck
That is both huge and insignificant at the same time!
permalink If the hotel was empty
It would more than hold the passengers from single A380 in the configurations into Heathrow. Looking at Wikipedia most are about 460-520 seats. Apparently Emirates do have some at over 600 seats. No-one has actually gone for the mad 800+ theoretical capacity
permalink so a 380 plus a 737
roughly.
