Nick Ferrari wondered how companies can justify giving their bosses such massive salaries whilst ordinary people are left in disarray.

"Managing director of Heathrow Airport, John Holland-Kaye, £1.5 million.

"I swear, at times over the holiday period recently that has been like a Moscow bread queue, waiting to get service there" Nick fumed.

"This is the price of failure."

He went on to point to the renumeration of the BA chief, in the wake of the airline cancelled a number of flights.

Nick also referenced the salary of Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary and Charlie Cornish of Manchester Airport in a tirade against the abominable situation in airports right across the nation.

"How do they manage to sustain this?"

He noted that he, nor the general public, would have any issue with the salaries "if these airlines were doing absolute gangbusters."

"Heathrow only announced this week they're going to ask for fewer passengers because they can't cope...meanwhile the boss, he's paid on Mondays and Thursdays and takes it home in a wheelbarrow!"
