No idea whether true or not, but sounds like a cool idea. Except that maybe AB
would need to widen its catchment area even further, as right now it is heavily concentrated (although not exclusively) on Germany. For traffic to LatinAmerica, it would be attractive to have some feed from Italy. Would AB
open up routes between PMI
and Italy? Or partner with an Italian airline? Or a Spanish carrier? Why not UX
(maybe because there are rumours that UX
will join Skyteam)?
I usually don't take part in speculations of this kind, but having experienced the AB
hub at PMI
for the first time myself two days ago, I must say that I was deeply impressed and it arouse my interest in this topic.
