A free market implies there is room for supply and demand. Reality is the airport model is nothing like it. Heathrow is in a monopoly position, that’s why they are attempting to put their fees up by 41% over 5 years whilst being shamed into spending money on winter equipment. Switch to Gatwick? No can do, it’s also full in peak times.

Same as all that guff the Tories fed us about competition on the railways. In reality there is no competition and the companies will increase their fares as much as possible whilst doing as little as possible in return for the highest fares in Europe.
