Size Matters

When you are the size, and importance, of BA you know that you can use your muscle to your advantage.

There is something of a row brewing between the non BA airlines using Heathrow and BAA (the owners of Heathrow), over the alleged competitive disadvantage they are facing when British Airways moves into Terminal 5 in March.

When BA moves in, other airlines will be forced to move to older terminals; these will resemble a building site.

As if to add insult to injury the other airlines are not being offered a discount for their trouble. British Airways is also not being asked to pay a premium for its facilities. Landing fees are based on weight of aircraft and passenger numbers, not the quality of the terminal.

As one airline boss told The Telegraph:

"Because it is the UK flag carrier, BA does get things handed to it on a plate."

Let us hope that BA remembers that it is mortal.
