British Airways stops offering the Financial Times to passengers


British Airways (BA) has stopped offering the Financial Times (FT) to passengers in response to negative stories about it in the paper, a source at the business title has told Press Gazette.

The FT revealed in today’s edition that it would no longer be available on BA flights, at airport lounges or gates after the airline made an “abrupt decision” to end its partnership with the newspaper. BA has said it regularly reviews what is offered by its airline. It continues to offer the Daily Mail and Guardian newspapers to passengers.

Virgin Atlantic was quick to respond on the news by trolling its British competitor: “Dear readers of the Financial Times, it’s not too late to change your airline,” the airline tweeted.
