It was 20 years ago today that we won the legal battle with British Airways following their 'dirty tricks' campaign.
The front page of the newspaper above explains what it was all about quite explicitly . The Sun's Editor Kelvin MacKenzie told me he'd have preferred it the other way around, as it would have made a better headline!
We decided the share the £500,000 damages among all the Virgin Atlantic staff (known by staff as the BA xmas bonus!) and had quite a party to celebrate. You can read all the details about the case over at the BBC.
