The results, if they're not controlled by pro-competitive legislation, will be eventually to increase price and reduce choice. Cartels have been with us since Roman times. Regulators come down on top of them eventually. </p> <p>There are signs of regulators flexing their muscles now in Europe and the USA. </p> <p>But they allowed a very strong alliance to develop, the Star Alliance, dominated by Lufthansa and United.
