    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi David, I'm sorry if my post wasn't more clear. I didn't say that it's not an issue, I said that "separate coupons would not be issued", as in they (the coupons) are no longer provided. While it is true that our site says the airport transfers are still issued as separate coupons, it does immediately follow that an airport transfer "does require a travel day on your pass". If you don't wish to expend a day of travel on your pass for your transfer from the airport, you can purchase separate <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/activities/heathrow-express/index.html">Heathrow Express</a> tickets. Separate tickets for the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/activities/heathrow-express/index.html">Heathrow Express</a> can be purchased here: <a title="Link: http://www.raileurope.com/activities/heathrow-express/index.html" href="http://www.raileurope.com/activities/heathrow-express/index.html">http://www.raileurope.com/activities/heathrow-express/index.html</a>. We hope to have the statement about the transfers being issued as separate coupons changed as soon as possible and appreciate you bringing it to our attention..

    Change in reply by Jeff to Hi David, We're sorry for any confusion, as the airport transfers are no longer issued in the form of separate coupons. As of January 1st, the airport transfers are included in the <a href="http://www.raileurope.com/rail-tickets-passes/britrail-london-plus-pass/index.html">BritRail London Plus Pass</a> with the use of a travel day. With that being the case, separate coupons would not be issued. Rest assured, you will still be able to use your pass to make your transfer from the airport. Thank you for bringing the mention of coupons to our attention. We hope to have that changed on our site as soon as possible..
