    Watchdog makes Heathrow cut charges.

    London's Heathrow Airport must cut the fees it charges airlines to reduce the substantial market power it has built up, the industry's regulator said on Tuesday, in a move which could lead to lower air fares for travellers.

    Read more on this from Reuters HERE.




    It's about time that these expensive regulators did something for their corn !

    We will see if this will ACTUALLY have any effect on air-fares or not.

    Well goody goody, the people who fly from Heathrow will get their flights cheaper.

    What about all of the other airports that overcharge for the landing and departure of planes ?

    Yes, sometimes it does seem that the people in the South of England get everything that is going while the people in the North and Scotland get the crumbs that are left.

    Don't worry, the Northerners and the Scots will remember this at the next GE.
