Time to stop the strikes
International Airlines Group (IAG) has responded to Ryanair and Norwegian’s long-haul ambitions with a new airline of its own. Will this “Level” the field? Another question: Will we ever see action to stop ATC strikes in Europe penalising millions of passengers? BTN has a COMMENT. Elsewhere, Cathay Pacific suffers its first loss for years, Citywing has closed but its routes are saved. Alitalia faces a major cost-cutting programme and Brandenburg Airport is delayed yet again. On the good news front, Edinburgh is about to break new ground, Etihad is ever-expanding and Lufthansa is making money. ON TOUR this week is in Bangkok, while AND FINALLY offers an insight into how the other half lives.
