Heard from a reliable source within BD today that WW is soon to "leave" the British Midland group. Whether this is through an agreed take-over of WW, merger with another carrier, insolvency etc has not been made apparent yet. However, the source tells me that major redundancies are on the cards which itself would suggest that WW would not therefore be merged back into BD mainline as they would still require the staff and crew to manage the same number of aircraft as they do now. It's not a case of if, but when, according to my source with staff in certain areas of the company already looking at career moves elsewhere before the inevitable happens. Any thoughts....????
