BA is compelled by Stock Market regulations to give accurate figures to the market and the press. It is a legal requirement.
I have never seen any exact, auditable and publicly available figures put out by BASSA. BASSA has even removed from its website the total number of BASSA members (because it was falling so fast and was becoming embarrassing…)
Those would be the same empty planes BASSA claimed were parked up at Shannon would they? None were there. Fact.
As ever, a typical BASSA tactic to fail to address the points made, and switch the argument onto irrelevant territory.
