Video: Queen opens Heathrow's new terminal

Today, Queen Elizabeth opened T5, the new airport terminal at London's Heathrow airport. It cost $9 billion to build. British Airways is the main tenant. T5 opens for flights on March 27. It's expected to serve about 30 million passengers a year. Hopefully, the fancy new terminal will resolve the problems with lost-luggage and flight delays that plagued Heathrow last year.
