Heathrow Express adding services.

What Heathrow Airport has to say:-We are very concerned by the impact that the proposed UK Border Agency immigration officer strike action on 30 November will have on arriving passengers at Heathrow. We are discussing contingency plans with the UK Border Agency and airlines, about how we can minimise the impact on our passengers. We recommend that you keep in touch with your airline to check the status of your flight or onward connection and for any advice about travel on that day. We will publish further passenger information on the website when it is available.

Managers will the drive trains. Heathrow Express attempting  to persuade other train operators to “lend” them drivers - regardless of the specific training requirements for their trains and route - and have also tried to get First Great Western staff to assist with their dispatch operations in a desperate PR bid to keep some services running.

Important, service from 8am-8pm every half hour. Before and after those hours check operation Heathrow Express amended schedule.
London Underground 

It never ceases to amaze us that of the 243 votes cast, 231 of them said "yes" to industrial action. A measly 231 workers can cause such travel devastation to thousands of travellers. Forcing us to take buses, slow us down, pay extra for perhaps unexpected hotel expenses and parking.
