BRITISH AIRWAYS has long been the world's most profitable and successful airline - streets ahead of its nearest rival. To remain in front, it needs to expand internationally - to forge links and tie-ups with other airlines that will make it not just the most successful airline in the world but also the biggest. So far, however, BA's strategy for global expansion has been thwarted at almost every turn. There have been some minor successes, certainly. Over the past year BA has taken a stake in TAT, a French regional carrier, and in a new German venture, Deutsche BA. In Russia, a partnership has been formed with Aeroflot, and most recently there was the link-up with Qantas of Australia, in which BA is to take a 25 per cent stake.
