BA - The BTN view to consider?

This week's COMMENT makes it clear.  There are no winners in the BA v BALPA pilots' dispute.  We would be pleased to hear from both sides.  In other news Air Antwerp arrives, and an illegal drone attack at Heathrow is foiled. EasyJet carried 332,000 passengers last Friday, a record for the carrier, and probably for a true British airline too.  And talking of numbers 262,000 people passed through Heathrow on 4 August, another record figure, but you cannot compare a short-haul airline with a fixed airport operation much of whose business is to far off places.   We highlight the London Infrastructure Summit and Virgin Atlantic's introduction of the Rolls-Royce powered Airbus A350.  ON TOUR is the Florida Everglades whilst AND FINALLY has some fizz about it.
