Just finished watching the Money programme tonight on the BA/Virgin price fixing story.
Wow was this dumbed down, scenes of the reporter virtually explaining what a flight is, also enjoying a spa and a massage. There was also a history of the airline industry in the UK.
All time filling because the show has nothing to add to the story. Relying on US Class Action lawyers for accusations to throw at the lawyers. These are the people who try to sue because burgers are bad for you.
I find the idea that BA & Virgin co-operated are fantastical. They hate each other and staff even rarely move between them. Also the programme makes out as if they have a market monopoly on US-UK flights when of course United and American can fly too; not mention of this. No mention of United and American being heavily subsidised to stay in business by the US Government.
The BA executives involved resigned today which suggests that BA are at fault and will pay a fine.
Poor show though, there is little enough business focused TV and lame efforts like this make me wish for even less!
