Taxes and more taxes

Welcome to BTN. In a feisty issue this week, COMMENT looks forward to what happens next on the Crossrail front while COMMENT PLUS sounds a warning over London City Airport access. In news, data breaches at British Airways and Marriott International attract record fines and IAG’s top man is taken to task. Norwegian’s CEO steps down and there are rumblings on the tax front in general and in France in particular. ON TOUR revisits the saga of The Mary Rose and ON TOUR SPECIAL reports on The Meetings Show. AND FINALLY suggests there may be even more to your average airline pilot than you think. See also BTN’s regular feeds on Twitter at #BTNewsUpdate.
