What I will state below is what I see happening, and NOT necessarily what I WANT to happen. I just wanted it to be clear.
I think in a couple of years some of the current big carriers will fall (maybe all) and, unlike before, their remains will not be bought in bulk by a few airlines but rather distributed to many smaller (but expanding) airlines. Eventually, however, the same thing that always happens will happen again, and some airlines will grow to become big carriers and some of them will fall too.
If you look back at history, this is what always happens; and it does because growing is such a natural thing but also such an incontrollable impetus.
This thread is for all of a.netters who want to share what they see happening in the future. Please do not post impossible/wet-dream scenarios or be offensive against others.
