Yes Mark, you are right. It is really awkward to read or hear how the different regional medias report or stress the situations of the US or European airlines at the moment.
The conclusions over the Asian Market especially China and India are not foreseeing anymore but becoming or is reality now.
I do believe there will be new stirring up/consolidating and alliances in the future. As for pax’s concern–it is good that the airlines are renewing/reinventing themselves–but hopefully for our sake!!
