Seems that 90% of airlines are against it:

If anyone is still reading, having clicked on the above link and been navigated away from the BT site via its very own in house developed software….

What is not mentioned in the “oh so impartial BBC” report is that several airlines quasi-monopolistic presence at LHR on certain routes, and have massive resources sunk into serving that hub, as well as supporting their various alliance partners

To support a move, not knowing the fate of LHR, and not knowing how good the infrastructure supporting such an airport, would be commercial suicide.

Probably also a dig at Boris, just for the hell of it. My the Trots are scared.
