BA closing outstations[? - MLA closing apparently]

Just read that BA is to close its Malta office at the end of the month.

I'm fairly sure they're not just shutting down this office since these type of things normally happen in big waves.

Does anyone know of other offices that are being shut down? Also what does this mean for pax? If the last flight of the day is cancelled will there be enough staff with authority to look after those stranded? Another degradation of service?

Could this be related to the fact that BA is stopping its flights to MLA at the end of this month?

And if/when it restarts next summer will be handled solely by an agent.

Alicante probably since they are ceasing service there soon as well. If it ever comes back, would likely be staffed by post-merger Iberia.

nice little airport Malta, perhaps thats the problem, they already use the Air Malta lounge so not much else left to close at the end of the month
