The US Big 3 and Melbourne, Australia

Well, last week's conversation being Copa in the 4 inner Argentina cities that they serve, this one will seem a bit like backtracking from that thread. Because for years I have been wondering, Melbourne being Australia's second largest city, with about 5,000,000 plus population around it, and a larg...

The business model of CM in Argentina is like CM in Brazil, offering multiplle cities and weekly frequencies, in those large countries. Regards...
