Can airlines not just buy slots but not use them until they're needed?
|Quoting BA777 (Reply 2):|
Its only the fact that BMED have more of an inclination towards BA (well, used to due to the ownership etc) and the media have picked up on it.
|Quoting VV701 (Reply 6):|
At LHR if you do not use a slot on 80 per cent of all occasions over a certain (?) time period
|Quoting VV701 (Reply 9):|
For 'certain (?) time period' read 'six months'.
|Quoting Gilesdavies (Reply 15):|
But I think the CAA or some other related authority should intervene on these kind of flights, and force the airlines to surrender the slots it they are not willing to use the slots to fly a "proper" commercial service selling tickets to passengers.
