Bob is part of the deal. Whether he gets a leading role is more debatable. Babs wants top spot by all accounts.

The Times was slagging off poor old Bob. As far as I can see he managed BA reasonably well. They are doing better than most European majors and that is all too quick to be down to Big Rod.

Personally I liked the tails except half the patterns were cr@p.

The big problem with BA is getting the hearts and minds of its staff. But that's been a conundrum for decades.
