Which is more or less what they are already doing. This is why there are contracts and targets in place that are enforced by bonus malus payments. Of course operators always seek ways of circumventing those, just as the franchiser seeks to tighten the rules to prevent that, but again, this is not restricted to foreign owned-owned companies.

I don't see how a post Brext scenario would induce them to screw the passenger or franchiser any more than they already do now.
One possibility is that the £ exchange rate will be lower so they deliver less profit home which in term pushes them to further cut costs or raise fares or in the worst case pull out of a franchise that nobody else is interested in taking over.
