This is very interesting...rather than lose precious gate times at Heathrow, BA is flying empty planes across the Atlantic. Why wouldn't they offer the space to lower income families...do something good for someone while they are ruining the environment? Take a page out of Branson's playbook. Now they are ruining the environment and doing nothing positive for anyone. Ridiculous.
British Airways is shuttling dozens of empty planes across the Atlantic because it has a shortage of cabin crew, it has emerged.
The "phantom" services have been flying between Britain and Canada and the US over the past two weeks in order to retain valuable slots at London's airports.
Several BA passenger flights took off without a single passenger, using up thousands of tonnes of jet fuel.
