BA scraps service to Chinese city cited by airport expanationists
Heathrow service to megacity Chengdu is not commercially viable, says airline on eve of decision about new runway
Chengdu was where British business would fly to and build trade links if only Heathrow was big enough, according to prominent backers of airport expansion.
But less than three years after British Airways found a Heathrow slot to fly to the Chinese megacity, and on the eve of a decision to build a new runway, the airline has dropped the route abecause it is not commercially viable.
