John Cleese wasn't the only person taking an expensive taxi ride due to airport closures, but when I saw this my immediate reaction must have been that he REALLY doesn't like traveling.

high speed trains

I would have said

good luck to him if he hoped to get the Eurostar train from Brussels back into the UK.

Because of all the air traffic cancellations, Eurostar was fully booked for the next few days.

But that was Friday, so I guess he either found out for himself by now, or struck lucky and found a seat.
