    <P>During a recession the clamour of voices calling for airlines to consolidate gives the impression that it is an inevitable consequence of the industry's woes. True, financial troubles and startling traffic falls make consolidation, acquisitions and failures more likely. It is also true, however, that none of the barriers that have thwarted such moves in the past have been removed to any significant degree.</P> <P>The highly regulated and cross-border nature of the industry has always made consolidation challenging. And, some argue, the tough market climate is acting as both catalyst and hindrance for consolidation. But the severity of the crisis means even the likely empire builders are having to make strengthening their own foundations their priority.</P> <P>Neither has there been the acceleration in a concentration of players which might have been expected as airlines were falling apace last autumn. "I've always believed airlines are like elephants - they don't die very easily,"http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Consolidation-Painful-progress-331201/
