The problem that might arise is the IB code share - by imposing a price cap surely IB would have to impose the same rate? The question is - would they be willing to, given that BA market seats on IB operated flights too.

I'm not talking about lowering all fares.
I'm thinking of a cap on a totally non refundable inflexible economy fare, that is also quota controlled.
Flexible fares would remain without a cap and business class fares unchanged.
Advertising a capped fare may also drive a bit of last minute business to BA instead of just assuming that orangeJet is the cheapest because it is a 'Low Cost' airline.
