Telling the 184,000 Americans who live and work in the UK that they can no longer go home for Thanksgiving is likely to damage Britain’s competitiveness every bit as much as restricting business travel.
Nice emotional business case there! I have been at Heathrow with one other family member in the terminal Thanksgiving queues, and hope never to be there again, though we did enjoy conversations with fellow queuers, so spirits were high even if our bodies were still grounded 😉
