BA profits down €100m after British airport terror alert

Published 03/11/2006

Profits at British Airways have fallen by more than twice the expected rate following last summer's airport terror alert.

The company was expected to lose around €40m following the foiling of an alleged plot to bomb transatlantic airlines en route from Britain to the US.

However, the actual losses reported today amount to €100m.
