If you look at the profits of MAG and the profits of some of its biggest airline customers - someone somewhere is having a serious laugh at the expense of the passenger.
I actually don't think that is the case, profit margins are very tight, it is down to volume. MAG runs airports that collectively see a throughput of about 60 million people, and they made 217 million, thats less than 4 per passenger unless I'm being a bit numb (there's a good chance of that), and I know from having sat and listened to the management of the biggest airline based at MAN, that margins are similar, 4p in the .

I don't think they are having a serious laugh at all, not at those margins.
