Of course I don't recommend sleeping in Heathrow Airport. One should
not sleep in an airport. However, in a time of need, much like my time
of need this weekend, it's better than sleeping on the street. If you
get stuck in this airport, or any other for that reason, sleeping in
the airport is an ok thing to do. I wouldn't even necessarily call it
sleeping. More like finding a free place to store your body and your
belongings for a few hours. There were a lot of other people doing it
while I was there. In Terminal 3 there are some sections of connected
chairs without armrests that are good for sleeping in. Those were all
taken by the time I got there, so I had to opt for a half-chair,
half-table situation. If you use some of your clothes as a pillow, and
some as a blanket, it almost is like you're in a bed. You have to cover
your face with a jacket, though, so you can pretend it's dark, because
they leave all kinds of lights on. I would definitely recommend
bringing ear plugs, because I couldn't sleep because it was loud. They
were cleaning the floor for an hour, then vaccuuming other parts, then
throwing bags of trash around... For the fact that there were about 15
people trying to sleep here, the cleaning people were not too
considerate. Chances are no one will take your bags though, because
everyone there is there for the same reason as you-- they got screwed
over by the airlines and couldn't catch the tube before it left. Who
knows, maybe you can even meet a new friend and/or lover this way. Who
needs a hotel when you can feel homeless for a night with a bunch of
strangers? An experience, indeed.

So boring!!! I forgot which terminal i was sleeping in but it sucked! It wasn't the nice international terminal. It was a local one that flew plans mainly to ireland. it was freezing and its hard to find chairs with no arm rests so you can lay all the way across. I eventually found some after wandering around but it was by teh doors and breezy. Anyways, it was free!! So i guess that makes up for it.
