BRITISH AIRWAYS has been effectively in court with the start of the trial of a current employee and three former executives on alleged price-fixing charges at Southwark Crown Court, London. BA's head of sales Andrew Crawley, ex-Commercial Director Martin George, ex-communications head Iain Burns and ex-UK and Irish Republic sales chief Alan Burnett are in the dock. The four men, who deny wrong-doing, are accused of agreeing with Virgin Atlantic to fix fuel surcharge prices between 2004 and 2006. Virgin executives are immune from prosecution as they blew the whistle on the price-fixing agreement. The trial is not expected to be completed until September at the earliest. http://www.hmcourts-service.gov.uk/HMCSCourtFinder
