PaulH1

Easy have an issue in that less that 50% of their ownership is EU/EEA/EFTA nationals - they have proposed that UK shareholders lose voting rights but I'm not sure if that is enough to meet...

The weight is not an issue, I was more concerned about the cops walking out and what damage their boots would do.

Totally agree - I'm extremely surprised that they are entertaining still allowing staff to rent from private landlords when they have company owned properties sitting empty. Perhaps...

But if IAG are at risk of bankruptcy then then it is quite likely that they will have a fire sale of assets in the group to try and prevent their collapse. So BA and Iberia could be broken up and...

I'm not sure its that simple. Given the ownership structure of BA with it being simply part of a Spanish based Company then any nationalization may only be possible with the agreement...

I think the 380 did very well for EK given that their whole business was built on the Hub/spoke model. I also wonder exactly how much EK actually paid for their airframes given that for most of its...

Well I would point out that companies across the globe handle redundancies without using LIFO every single day without a problem, even BA has done that in the past.
