Re: Refuelling staff to stage three-day strike at Heathrow.

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...

Airlines choose if, when, and how to increase fares if deemed necessary....not Walsh or IATA. But then...
