Normally I am against government intervention. However, with restructuring, I see a 'business case' for the Polish government to rescue LOT assuming they do reorganize (unlike certain other airlines that always re-subsidize).
|Quoting ThomasCook (Reply 7):|
The only people who would benefit from the EU ruling against aid for LOT are Ryanair and Wizzair. The Polish economy and people certainly would not benefit in any way shape form. It is in Poland's very best interests to ensure LOT remain the national carrier and maintain direct links to America and Canada.
The links would be replaced on long haul. I see more of the value in LOT domestic and regional by creating connections that enable business in Poland.
