Will my right hon. Friend ensure that a robust stand is taken to protect the interests of principal British carriers, such as British Airways and Virgin, on transatlantic routes and to ensure that they have sufficient gateways into the US?

Was it not sad that Trans World Airlines was refused an air service agreement into Stansted?
