BA can spam you but you can't spam BA!

BA sent me their thoughts about Heathrow expansion, so I thought I'd do the same. Here's their answer.... I've asked their press team if they had comments...

I am living under the flight path and am dismayed by this lobbying, especially since you reduced your footprint in Gatwick.

Dear Mr Windsor,

You may have heard about the public consultation the Government has just launched on its plans to expand Heathrow airport.

As a regular flyer from Heathrow, you will know how prone it is to delays. Whilst Terminal 5 will deliver a seamless and relaxed customer experience, we are still restricted by the limited take off and landing slots available at Heathrow.

The proposals are to change the method of runway operation to create more take-off and landing slots, and to build a short third runway as a permanent solution to Heathrow's congestion.

The benefits of these proposals are:
  • Reduced delays for departures and arrivals;
  • The opportunity to add up to 75 new destinations, giving you more choice when flying
    from Heathrow;
  • Less queuing for take-off and landing, reducing aircraft carbon dioxide emissions by 330,000 tonnes a year.
I support the Government's proposals very strongly.

I believe these plans - which must pass strict environmental tests - represent our best hope for making your experience as our customer easier, calmer and more reliable.

I would be very grateful if you felt able to support our position. Doing so will take less than a minute of your time.

To register your support please click on the "find out more" button above, sign in to your Executive Club account and click on the "Register your support" button.

It is very important to us that the Government hear from our most frequent customers, as you are the people who know Heathrow best.

With best wishes,

Willie Walsh
