So the BA board wants to reward Willie for all his faults.
Here you go my son - now run along home with your bag of loot.
Frankly very poor show on behalf of the board for rewarding him this way. As if the fiasco at T5 was not enough (you have seen my previous blog on his follies), today the latest stats show a significant fall in traffic.
The chop came down on Ayling much faster. If Willie has to go - and there are many who believe his performance is adversely affecting the airline - then the Board will have to eat a lot of humble pie.
