Podcast with David Field and Addison Schonland

Today I’ve been putting together a podcast with my colleague David Field, who’s Airline Business US Editor based in Washington DC, and Addison Schonland of IAG who’s created quite a few of these now and is producing some very slick material. I’m asking them about what’s happening (or not happening) with US airline consolidation and what on earth’s going on at Southwest Airlines; they’re asking me about Airbus and EADS’ financial results that I reported on from Paris. We’re going to do this for the next few weeks at least – take a listen and tell us what you think.

    This consolidation of two large low-cost carriers (LCCs) will eliminate one brand (AirTran) and result in higher airfares. Or maybe that airfares will fall as network or legacy airlines face formidable competition from a larger and more powerful Southwest Airlines. Most attention has been focused on Southwest’s expansion plans, it may be more important to examine the paradox of why one profitable airline wants to exit the business while another is pursuing a growth opportunity.
