All this b*llocks - in an Airport that's already overstretched. Whats wrong with the airlines paying a retainer for the slots, for say a maximum of one season? Cheaper than flying fresh air around, less aircraft (one hopes = less delays) plus it would keep the greens happy. Never happen though! Why?. Because empty aircraft have no passengers on board who spend money in the terminal!
