This year s London vacation is coming up, and what do you know? The RMT is
threatening to strike when one of us is flying home from Heathrow.

We are staying in Walthamstow, near Bakers Arms (Lea Bridge Road/Hoe
Street/High Road Leyton intersection)[1]. The flight is scheduled for
0950am on Thursday, June 30.

If there is no tube, how do we best get to Heathrow? I assume other
services are not affected.

Maybe OverGround train service from Blackhorse Road to Gospel Oak,
then Overground train Service Gospel Oak to Richmond.
Then train from Richmond to Feltham, from Feltham 285 bus for
terminals 1,2,3, or 490 bus for terminal 5.
If you want Terminal 4 get either bus and get of at Hatton Cross and
get any Terminal 4 bus from there. All these services run frequently.
