Reply To: BA squeezing two more rows into short-haul aircraft.

My theory is they are downgrading to the likes of Easyjet and will then sell their entire European operations (LHR slots included) to perhaps Easyjet who will then feed pax into BA’s longhaul network which is profitable.

I don’t think so – IAG seems to be harmonising the cabin configuration of all short haul airlines (BA, Iberia, Lingus, Vueling) and my thought is a group wide view will provide economies of scale and possibly horizontal integration of the supply side to the long haul ops.

The longhaul operations will remain differentiated.
