Taxis have been getting shafted at Heathrow with new mobile PH desks on the terminals.
Wasn’t really a great advert for PH as passengers were seen waiting here for anything up to half an hour for their car, while vacant Taxis were available in the rank outside.
Who were behind the signs, which company were servicing the desks, who gave permission ???
We have been reliably informed that certain “colleagues” were responsible for allowing this booking desk.
The LCDC airport reps are now trying to ascertain just who these “colleagues” are.
Good news today:
The desks were removed this morning after Marshals informed BAA of the unauthorised signage.
We have been told Taxi Marshalls will continue to monitor the situation, and all relevant information will be passed on to BAA regarding any unauthorised signage in future.
London Cab Drivers Club airport rep Jamie Hawes said:
“The LCDC will always take action on behalf of the trade at Heathrow and we are assured that these desk are to be removed permanently”.
A blast from the past:
Taxi booking desks....should they be restored to all terminals ?
But....are they needed now all Taxis take credit and debit cards?
