And BA is running a business which would be holed below the waterline if LHR was shut….
Surely that is the point of capitalism…the strong survive and the weak fail…..
The pages are often filled with comments about state subsidy of AF AZ and many others but state subsidy surely extend to protecting a declining business by preventing effective competition. That no one will bite the bullet and build Boris Island is in large part due to the lobbying of Heathrow Ltd and BA. WW has made it clear that he does not support a new airport because he knows that its current offer is poor and would not be supported if there were new entrants and greater competition.
The 3rd runway is nonsense as is the idea that it could be in Bucks. Let Boris have his way and as the saying goes……”Build and they will come”
BA may just up its game at the same time.
