Journey Planner

Hi.  Does anybody know a way of making the TFL Journey Planner show the
best route between two places only on transport which has the normal
zone-based billing?

For travelling from Zone 1 to hotels near Stockley Park it keeps sending
me on the Heathrows Express or Connect to Heathrow Airport, both of
which incur additional charges unrelated to the zone they look like
they're in.

I tried restricting it to journeys through Hayes & Harlington, but that
only makes the situation worse -- here's a route it's just suggested:

* Start at Paddington.
* Catch the Heathrow Express, towards Heathrow Terminal 5.
* But actually alight at Heathrow Terminals 1, 2, 3.
* Catch the Heathrow Connect that's heading back towards Paddington.
* Call at Hayes & Harlington (but stay on the train).
* Alight at Ealing Broadway.
* Dictrict Liine to Acton Town.
* Piccadilly Line to Heathrow Terminal 5.
* Walk 26 minutes to the hotel.

Technically that meets my requirements, but wasn't _precisely_ what I
had in mind ...

Thank you!
