Heathrow Ghost Flights

Friday, April 13, 2007

Turns out that British Midland (which is confusingly owned by a Syrian) is flying a flight to/from Cardiff every day to keep their landing slot at LHR.

Why spend 5K quidskys (gas alone!) to fly an empty plane? Simple, the 10M pound landing slot at LHR makes that a no-brainer.

Oh, and if you're a science fiction or wikka fan, they're also pumping the C02 equivalent of a town of 2,000 into the atmosphere each month. (Insert Woddy Allen "Sleeper" reference here!)

Read all about it in The Australian.

To summarize: British Airline, Syrian Owner flys to Cardiff, as reporting in Australia. Got it?
