    I note your article -Airport Security putting people off public transport and the comment about "very hard to see how public transport works for families at airports".

    I have a family of 5 and with holiday luggage, we perfectly fit into a fantastic door to door system of privately run public transport called "my car". Then when we reach the airport we join hundreds of other people all going the same way, on the ultimate in sustainable public transport - an airplane.

    It depends where you live, but I find it is practically impossible to justify "publically" funded transport like buses and trains, when they are so slow, undependable, expensive and not direct.

    I have just bought my family flights from London to Turin with BA for less than it costs for off peak day returns for a 45min trip to London from my local station and you don't even get food and drink!
