Couldn't the affected airlines just buy fuel off other suppliers at LHR? Or alternatively drive a few bowsers over from other airports? Unless they use the same supplier there (at a guess they probably do). May not be that easy, I would guess most other fueling vendors are just as tight on staffing...Jump to post

Do the American people really not learn from their mistakes?Jump to post
