    Post correct form of the adjectives

    Dear all,
    Did I complete the sentences with the correct form of the adjectives?
    1. Which airport is farther from London-Heathrow or Stansted?
    2. That was one of the worst meals I have ever eaten.
    3. Iím not as taller as you.
    4. The situation is actually much better we thought.
    5. Because we didnít have enough money, we chose the least expensive form of travel- the local bus.
    Many thanks.

    A space is needed as the airport's name is London-Heathrow/London-Gatwick/London-Stansted


    2. That was one of the worst meals I have ever eaten.
    OK

    3. Iím not as taller as you.
    I'm not as tall as you.
    I'm not taller than you.

    4. The situation is actually much better we thought.

    However, the original sentence was not correct, and should be "much better than"

    Sorry for the confusion :)
