Virgin Atlantic and British Airways are in a

I can't see BA as a chap low fair carrier, although I can see Virgin having one, likes it EXPRESS. But good luck to them both. I belive British airways 747 will have something to say about this, seeing he was originally VIRGIN ATLANTIC and is now VIRGING ATLANTIC.

Cityflyer is a BA franchisee and is, according to Flight Intl,the second largest carrier in London-Gatwick with 12% of all slots, so this might be valuable for Virgin. For BA it might be important to get a hold on Cityflyer because otherwise they might lose the feed. BA and Cityflyer had already agreed on price: £75m
