Size Isn't Everything

DLR_City_15Jan09.jpg In further air news: we love the idea that wee minnow City Airport could end up owning bloated Gatwick. Reports suggest that City's owner has cobbled together a consortium that will bid around £2bn for the Sussex airport. BAA put Gatwick up for sale last year, trying to pre-empt the Competition Commission's monopoly investigation. Bids for Gatwick are expected to arrive at Gate 13 - sorry, BAA's desk - on Monday. We're still a bit sad that the Virgin / easyJet effort fell apart, our vision of Gatwick repainted red and orange gone forever. (Image / OwenBlacker)
