Summary note
A file of correspondence and reports concerning scheduled air services to West Berlin. The documents cover the inter-German services offered by British Airways, Pan American Airways, and Air France -- efforts to rationalise the services and to increase fares following a downturn in traffic and rising costs -- and issues caused by the rationalisation of routes, which will mean that Pan Am will no longer use the central corridor. Other documents in the file cover meetings between U.K. and U.S. representatives to discuss the rationalisation measures -- the implications of possible strike action by staff -- and the reaction of the West German press. The file also includes copies of British Airways' financial records for the route -- detailed statistics on inter-German passenger travel -- and details of debates on the issue in the West German Bundestag.
