This is how insane this has got. Airport charges are not taxes. They're price of doing business. Ryanair's biggest win was convincing the market airports should be (almost) free at point of use and...

BA is often the monopoly carrier and frequently where they're not, it's a cosy duopoly with another. It's not the market dictating at all, it's BA dictating to the market. They can dump the crummiest...
