AVIATION CLUB regulars should rush in and book their tickets for the next luncheon at London”s Institute of Directors (Willie Walsh was a sell-out ” see last week”s ABTN). Guest speaker on Thursday 17 March is the Rt Hon Alistair Darling MP (left), secretary of state for transport, less than one year after the last official government representative at the club, Tony McNulty, the former minister for transport and member for Harrow East, who was late to arrive and quick to go. Mr Darling has a fine reputation but will be hard pushed to explain the setbacks to the airline industry articulated in this week”s COMMENT column. Members only and their guests.
