True, however some LCCs are major airlines. There are quite a few countries where an LCC is the largest airline in the country.
Take Hungary for example, after the collapse of Malev it doesn't have a major airline anymore. Or does it? Wizzair is by far the largest airline in Hungary and one of the larger airlines in Europe. Yes, it is an LCC but it's also a major airline. Any idea what the largest Hungarian airline is that isn't an LCC? I wouldn't know. In fact, I wouldn't know any Hungarian airlines besides Wizzair. They certainly ain't major airlines.
In Romania, Blue Air (LCC) is bigger than Tarom (flag carrier). Is Tarom a major airline? It might have an impressive history, but nowadays it's rather small. If anything, Blue Air would have more rights to the title of major airline than Tarom.

Why isn't LCC like Indigo a "major" airline exactly? It is way bigger than AI and 9W put together - except it has all 32x fleet.
