On Saturday July 25, 2009 our flight from Dublin to London was late we ended up getting an unexpected layover. An afternoon in London!
We flew Aer Lingus from Dublin to London and the flight left Dublin about an hour late. This caused us to miss our connection.
We had hardly slept the night before due to music from a pub next to our hotel (we would have been much better off just joining the party!)
Aer Lingus got us overnight accommodations and meal tickets at the Park Inn near the airport. We could have just slept in the hotel; but didn't. Our luggage stayed at the airport. We took the Hoppa Bus from Heathrow to the hotel, freshened up and took a bus to the Underground station and went off on an unexpected adventure!
