This still hasn't pleased UK ATC'ers, if I am to believe their comments on pprune. Their opinion is that the options ranged from the bad, to the worst, and it was all a question of choosing the "less bad" option.
One ATC ppruner has said that an anonymous airline (part of the above consortium) has already questioned the need to have three radar controllers at an anonymous location during the late/early hours, when mainly only cargo a/c ply the UK skies at these times.
I thought the Government's choice was the sensible one, but ATC'ers are still keeping their "powder bone dry", meaning they have not ruled out strikes completely, in the future.
Maybe I am naive in thinking that TAG's claims to run for no profits are well and true. Or are UK ATC'ers being overly paranoid??
