BA merger 'good for passengers'
British Airways (BA) boss Willie Walsh
has said the planned merger with Iberia
is "great news for British Airways, our
customers and our shareholders".
He also said there was "no question" of
the airline's standards of service
being cut after its merger.
His comments came a day after the two
carriers said they had reached a
preliminary merger agreement.
BA's main union, Unite, warned it would
not back the deal without a commitment
to avoid compulsory redundancies.
