pay retainer for slots

Interesting concept.

who would you propose the retainer is paid to?

Airports would love this as they currently get nothing from slot trading.
This is all done between airlines.

Government would also love it, but the runway is not theirs to charge for the slot.

slot co-ordinators can't take it as that is an effective bribe and breaks all their rules.

the whole system is a joke.
the owners of the runway who pay for it's upkeep get very little say in the matter. maybe the system should be reviewed.
