FDOS……+1 on removal of YQ.

I agree that LHR is all the things WW says however how he can do this given the level of YQ does amaze me. How can he really suggest that taxes and fees be reduced to boost demand when for 5 years he has overseen the rises in YQ that now mean they are 3 times the level of APD and almost 10 times the level of LHR passenger service charge.

Indeed a quick F booking shows that BA fuel surcharge exceeds all other fees taxes etc on a LHR pHX flight by a factor of 2.

I do not dislike WW or believe he is wrong to demand cuts in fees however he needs to sort his own house out first.
