Sir: Des Wilson (letter, 1 April) omits to mention that BAA contrives to increase the number of transfer passengers at Heathrow. Jaded passengers, having nothing else to do, "demand", it seems, yet more shops. And we are asked to accept that this is the reason for BAA's grotesque application to build another shopping centre/airport next to Heathrow. Perhaps BAA have not realised that the tide is turning against monster shopping centres.
