Panel: Alliances, partnerships & JVs: Opportunities and challenges of cooperation

To attract every passenger in highly competitive markets, FSCs and LCCs are having to learn how to cooperate with each other across many new platforms and in new ways. Three global alliances are also looking at incorporating LCCs. However cooperating is not always easy and the costs versus benefits may initially look unattractive.
