  1. Flights arriving at Birminham Airport today from British (mainland) airports.
    Glasgow 6
    Edinburgh 6
    Newcastle 2
    Inverness 1

    So no flights from Birmingham to London, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield, Nottingham or Old Oak Common.

    “If you look at a country like ” Great Britain “you do not have these short domestic air routes” like London Birmingham because they have a high speed line between them already.
    Build a high speed railway line between Birmingam and Glasgow or Edinburgh or Newcastle and the trains are not going to be full enough to justify the expense of constructing the line.

    So the whole point of the project is to have a straight line where trains do not stop. Why?
