I'm working on an econ. paper about airline privatization. I realize most European national/flag carriers are largely funded by the state and up until now, assumed BA was also. However, I've come across a book that says Margaret Thatcher pushed for an intiative to fully privatize BA in 1987. Anyway, my questions are these: is BA now 100% private? If so, what its current financial situation and does it receive aid from the goverment to prevent it from going under during the aviation slump? Where can I find info. regarding this matter.
