The airport will get a full length taxiway, more parking stands and an
expanded terminal building.

I think that translates as "Fuck the residents of east london.".

That sounds really good. It's a step in the right direction.

As long as there is enough terminal capacity in the rebuild. Years ago
it was a lovely airport to use, these days it seems to have
overcrowding to rival Luton.

I suppose the expanded airport terminal will initially be very nice,
but as it fills up with more flights, it'll get crowded again.

Yes, its just what London needed, more aircraft flying over the 8 million
people here disturbing them, more pollution from them and the extra ground
transportation in just the wrong place. Just so Billy Banker in canary wharf
can save an hour not having to go to heathrow. Come Brexit a lot of them might
naff off elsewhere anyway and city airport might turn into a white elephant.

As the man who is always the first to nit-pick about the use of the phrase
"up to", I note your bias in deleting it from the original that you have
quoted.
