I’m on my old hobby horse here…..
Is the airline business the only industry that is allowed to so blatantly create monopolistic anti-competitive cartels and then euphemistically call it an alliance or code share agreement?
Would Sainsbury’s and Waitrose be allowed to split revenues in certain towns to assure profitability equally?
Would RBS and HSBC be allowed to sign an agreement to manipulate lending rates and then equally share the revenue?
Would Scottish Power and EON be allowed to sign an agreement to share each others tariff’s ?
