grrrrrrrrrrrrr @ fasttrack - that program funded by uk tv license payers but not shown on uk tv!!! mega disslike, considering its one of my favs and I only ever get to watch it when abroad in asia normally!!!
aside from this, a very interesting video and it doesnt seem like things will get any easier, with little growth in terms of additional aircraft to add to European fleets against huge growth in ME airlines' fleets. The battle is not over yet, not by a long way.

It's part of BBC World and unlike the BBC content in the UK, BBC World is a commercial arm of the BBC that gets revenue from advertising revenue etc. Plus we here in the UK can still watch it for free over the BBCs excellent online content so don't get too wound up.
Would be good to see the european airlines with their respective alliances tie up with some more of the M.E./Gulf carriers. It looks like Emirates really doesn't want or need and alliance but smaller players like GF and WY could mutually benefit OneWorld, *A or ST. This would give customers of those alliances more options i.e. the pax who is prepared to pay the premium for non-stop over say BA or pay a reduced fare to travel via a code-share alliance partner hub in the M.E/Gulf.
