Press Gazette has an interesting take on this story as you can see here. It claims that British Airways has been unhappy with some of the coverage of the airline in the newspaper and has decided to retaliate.
The coverage cited includes, in March, stories about BA staff threatening strike action, a flight landing in Edinburgh instead of Dusseldorf, and staff claims that a BA call centre in Germany was “open to abuse”. Given that the first two of these stories were covered by almost all other newspapers, it seems an odd stance to take.
