Is a seat too much to ask for on a train?

Like a great many other people, I often travel from the island platform 5 and 6 at Gatwick Airport station to a destination close to the Sussex coast.

Until recently, a waiting room was available on that windy and bleak platform.

Big changes are now taking place which, I understand, will not be completed until well into the coming winter.

Meanwhile, the waiting room is closed, and there are not even seats available for passengers. Surely it is not beyond the wit of man to provide seats within 24 hours and a temporary waiting room within a week?
