National Express Heathrow Stansted recent customer reviews
Bus was held back at T2. We ended up over 30 min late. Driver also not happy to be held up.
After waiting one hour it turned out the bus never turned up, leaving me stranded at Heathrow Airport. Trying to speak to a human was almost impossible.
Left on time and arrived on time. Capable, pleasant and efficient driver. Fell asleep so no negative comments.
