Deeply unhappy with what it considers an unfair charging regime at Heathrow, British carrier British Midland Airways Ltd. is continuing to push the national airport authority for some form of recompense. The airline remains at odds with the British Airports Authority's (BAA) approach to raising funds for the Terminal 5 development through increased landing charges, introduced last year. British Midland and BAA's ongoing discussions to resolve the issue could take a further 6-9 months to play out and could yet end up in court.
