Heathrow has been caught charging Chinese visitors more for a promotion than none Chinese.

Heathrow duty free Chinese discrimination 'unacceptable' - BBC News

Appalling and thankfully stopped now. Hopefully World Duty Free will face prosecution for this.

In this age of transparent pricing, it has to be a DUMB manager who approved this scheme. Should be shown the door .

In this day and age, how on earth do people think they will get away with this? Whomsoever blessed this should be sacked as it is blatant discrimination based on race.
