i am new to this forum, although i was reading it for years. must say, it's the most interesting and definitely the best aviation forum in the world.
well, and here we go with my first question:
i have to write an assignment for my university. as a huge fan of civil aviation i decided do my work about low cost carriers. in fact, i want to compare the capital structure of LCC's with those of traditional airlines. another part will be the calculations of cost of capital etc. gerearlly speaking, i am going to investigate and compare some aspects of corporate finance.
now my question: has anybody ever done something similar? or does anybody know some research papers, books etc. concerning this topic? it would be a great help to me as i havent found anything yet.
