We have interesting times coming. There are already hundreds of routes with huge overcapacity. Still there are something like 3000 orders of long range jets. While those planes start arriving, will we finally see bankrupties of the bigger airlines or airlines in greatest cities? Or will the growth be infinite?
At least the current order situation and sizes of airlines made me re-think my own strategy. I was going to order some MD-11's, but getting them somewhere in 2001 would be too late for long haul boom. Instead I decided to stay mostly domestic and use mostly planes for less than 200pax.
