It is quite incredible that the problems at Terminal Five have still not been resolved. It is expected that 50 flights will be cancelled today, bringing the total since Thursday to over 400, while 28,000 bags are somewhere in this mess.

This is nothing short of a national disgrace and aside from the inconvenience being caused to passengers, huge damage is being done to the attractiveness of Britain as a place to do business. But no one at British Airways seems to think they should resign. At time like this, one really does wish that they had carried on with their rebranded tail fins and dropped the British bit of their name completely.
