BAA shares up 15% today...that's an extra billion squid the Spaniards would have to fork out if they want LHR.

Don't worry ...Ferrovial is a very strong company. LHR & the entire BAA could be under Spanish capital Big grin

Ferrovial has already the Belfast City airport and half of Bristol airport according to BBC News: >""BAA shares soared 20% following the announcement from Ferrovial, which already owns half of Bristol airport and completely owns Belfast City airport.""<
