T O those British airlines which did poorly in a survey of leg room in economy seats by the Business Traveller magazine. Are you sitting comfortably? The most generous with its space is Virgin Atlantic but it came only tenth in a list headed jointly by Cathay Pacific and Singapore Airlines.

British Airways could do no better than 21st while easyJet just avoided the bottom 31st place which went to -- Iberia. Interesting, but what kind of a business person travels in economy anyway?
