This was also the time BA forgot who they were and slowly lost focus and money. Remember investing in France (TAT) and Germany (Deutsche BA) never turned a profit once. It was all about neglecting...

They operated both Copenhagen and Stockholm out of LCY for a time but both were dropped a while back, picked up as SAS pulled out so perhaps not a gold mine.
