OFT To Launch Investigation Into 'unfair' BAA

Tue Dec 12, 2006 5:30 pm

The OFT has announced that an investigation into BAA ownership of airports in and around London and Scotland is to be launched. The office has stated that the current policy is not providing a good deal for consumers.

Expect O'Leary to throw a field day.

Sorry for the lack of a source but keep an eye on BBC News as it should come up. It was however mentioned on Breakfast and The Today Program

Here is an idea. How about the British government get over the stupidity known as the PPT and just retake those airports

I would agree. BAA had all the airports initially when they were privitized. When you do something like that you can'tcomplain when the cherry-pick the good ones.
