T5 Heathrow Cappuccino, Most Expensive In the World?

XRate £1 = $2

They've been having horrendous (what are claimed to be just) teething problems with the baggage handling system at the new terminal 5 at Heathrow International Airport last week, but the problems don't seem to stop there.

According to a report we saw on Ananova, reporting a story from The Sun (a British tabloid), a visitor to the new terminal finished off 4 cappuccinos while waiting for a traveler flying in from Hong Kong.

She was expecting a bill for about £12.

The bill was actually for £361,514.97.

The error was immediately rectified and apparently everyone had a laugh at the error which was blamed on a computer glitch.
