Hi.

Iím sure you probably all know this but to save you the trouble of looking everything up, Heathrow Express no longer sell 5p first class fares for 15yr olds and under.

I believe they never meant to offer them in the first place, sadly.

Welcome to the forum ... TT-ONR-NRN (Trying to decode your user name there - looks like a poster code?)

Even with the simplest of networks - HEX being just Paddington to Heathrow - it's easy to get fare anomalies or gremlins in the system.

Could a 44 year old have bought three 15 year old tickets for a total of 15p and added them together?  Grin  Grin

I'm 44...

Not the sort of fare anomaly I'd exploit though. Explaining your reasoning to the magistrate would get you short shrift I suspect.  Tongue
