I expect nothing else in this day and age - am I overly pessimistic or are some people here living in a nice cuddly bubble? I'd love to have the kind of job that everyone here seems to have, I didn't think they existed anymore...
I think this is less about this isolated incident (however deeply savoury it is), and that many people (on FT, in the media, and increasingly amongst the general population) are constantly waiting for the next BA balls up. And they keep coming, sure as night follows day, each plumbing new and different depths of inadequacy and heartlessness.
