Heathrow Airport is prepping for a record number of passengers –- and their bags –- during the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Eighty percent of Games attendees — enough athletes, officials and spectators to fill 250 jumbo jets — will arrive for the games via Heathrow.

And they’ll all be bringing bags: on the peak travel day of the Games, Heathrow expects to handle more than 200,000 bags, compared to 150,000 on a normal day.
