A lighter side of the whole, sad affair. I like the report in today’s Scotsman:
“On the Edinburgh and Glasgow-Gatwick route, BA hired aircraft from no-frills rival Ryanair, with passengers having the novel experience of being served free food and drink by Ryanair staff wearing their normal uniforms. A Ryanair spokesman joked: “Never mind the coffee – being on time will be a new experience for these passengers.””
Sadly, from bitter experience of BA domestic, the final comment is probably true!!
