And this why BA could be tempted to out bid Virgin and kill the deal at birth but to be honest only speculating but its certainly bought this forum to lfe with loads of differing opinions.Absolutely they would. This deal isn't about saving flybe, or stobart growing, it's about VS, one of BA and EI's main competitors, placing themselves in a position to grow. If VS didn't do this they would remain fairly stagnant, as MAN couldn't grow without more structured feed. Not all of BAs passengers come from London, if MAN is an alternative option from the Midlands, the North or by flying down from Glasgow or the southwest, then BA lose out.
