Trouble at the border

What is happening to British Airways in the corporate world of IAG? COMMENT sounds a warning.  Linked to COMMENT  BA's  Alex Cruz  lambasts the “Border Farce”.    Ryanair suffers more strikes and  China marks an A350-900 double while the Ultra- Long-Haul model heads over the Atlantic. Our monthly MOTORING round-up has a Jaguar road test, ON TOUR is on the Isle of Wight and there is something regal in the air in this week’s AND FINALLY. See also BTN’s regular feeds on Twitter.

And a reminder from last week that Eurostar was the subject of ON TOUR and we highlighted QE2 in our monthly CRUISING feature. The old girl is still very much around!
