Why Did Boac And BEA Merge?

Wed May 09, 2001 12:43 pm

I was wondering if anyone can tell me why BOAC and BEA merged in the early 1970s. I remember reading somewhere that it was a financial disaster at first. What was the British government's logic for this merger since they had both been seperte entities for decades.
