Its All Gone Quiet In Nigeria

Sat Dec 24, 2011 9:19 am

Whats happening now with BA and Nigeria ?
Its gone all quiet about the spat between the Nigerian Government and BA and others
Those of us like myself who have worked and visited Nigeria often know what its like with bribes and payments
for this that and the other but this seems to be at a high level with the Nigerian government.
Has Arik managed to get slots at LHR ? or are they still trying to get them for free ?

Quoting antonovman (Thread starter):

Arik Air did get 7 weekly slots to operate flights to Abuja from Heathrow. The timings look similar to the slots they previously used for the route. At the time it was said that they were leasing them at competitive rates.

I was waiting for more information on the issue to be published - but I'm still waiting. So all I can imagine is that all concerned parties came to a mutually acceptable agreement "in the back room".
