Camps & contest: ME3 vs CN3 Versus US3 vs EU3

Mon Apr 02, 2018 11:00 am

On the global aviation market in the last decade or two, there is a palpable picture of competitive landscape featuring a cluster of big-name carriers that can be popularly categorized in such geography-based groups as the ME3 (EK, QR, EY), the CN3 (CZ, CA, MU) , the US3 (AA, DL, UA), and the EU3 (LH, AF-KL, IAG). And they can apparently be further divided into the largely state-owned camp of ME3 and CN3 vis-à-vis the practically privatized camp of US3 and EU3. The former camp has been described as a strong disruptive force on the international aviation scene by some industry observers for obvious reasons. Just recall the ferocious row btwn the ME3 and the US3 over the thorny issue of subsidies in recent years.

What are yr thoughts on these different models of airlines with vastly different nature of ownership? How could they compete with one another on a more less equal footing? Would state-owned airlines prosper for long? Or, is privatization still the way to go?

Ownership per se does not matter.

But I smell another rat here.
