No one is suggesting BA keep the 747 in the air because we like them, you've misunderstood the posts. Many of us also run businesses and make decisions based on economic realities rather that...

I wonder what the business arrangement for use of the pod is? Do Thistle pay HAL per person, or an annual payment for use, which they recoup through the individual charges? If it's the latter, then...
