I'm travelling to Gatwick for my holiday flight this Sunday, we will arrive at around 3am to the airport for a 6am flight. What will be open in the departure lounge? Will I be able to get a coffee/breakfast? I'm not really bothered about the shops although do want to get some drinks seeing as you can't take your own through security. I've heard lots of different views on this but having never travelled at this hour before would appriciate hearing from anyone who's been recently in the middle of the night!
Also are there flights departing/arriving all through the night or will our 6am flight be one of the first of the day??
