Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alliances have become an important part of the network airline scene. This book is essential reading for those who wish to understand alliances and their impact on the international airline industry, providing well-researched discussion on key questions such as how far they really benefit airlines, do they matter to passengers, and will mergers replace them in the future?Dr Peter Morrell, Director of Research, Air Transport Group, Cranfield University"As an Alliance manager, I was pleased to read this valuable book that covers most of the airline alliances areas. It has gone further than a simple description of the recent phenomenon to include chapters on the history of global alliances and research on their impact, such as how customers benefit from them, antitrust concerns, relationship with mergers, etc. Easy to read, it is captivating and may be considered as the happy ending to the Hard Landing book published 10 years ago in the US by Thomas Petzinger Jr. It will be a natural reference for all executives wishing to join the alliance game."Patrick Bianquis, VP Alliances, Air FranceAirline Choices for the Future: From Alliances to Mergers offers an up-to-date assessment of the industry as it stands today, delivering a comprehensive insight into how the world of airline alliances is changing, and how the merger phenomenon is likely to fit into the new scenario. The purpose of this book is twofold. Firstly, it outlines the evolution and the reasons behind alliances between international air carriers, the alliances track records and the way they have affected airlines and the air transport industry. Secondly, drawing on past and more recent developments in the industry, it examines the experiences airlines involved in cross-border mergers have gone through and the advantages and difficulties they have come across. Alliances and mergers are presented from both the airline and the consumer perspective. Contents: Foreword; Preface; Once rivals, now partners: why?; Learning from the past, looking at the present: first the facts; Once rivals, now partners: how?; Landed or stranded - are alliance customers happy?; Allied and profitable, or miserably entangled?; Learning from the past, looking to the future: success stories; Not always a happy ending; The road not taken: further along the alliance or the merger path?; References; Index.The book provides a balanced account of where mergers and alliances have taken the industry to date, bridging the gap between merger theory and implemented practices and strategies. It also identifies the challenges alliances and cross-border mergers have faced and highlights the key forces affecting airline development. Theoretical evidence is supplemented by data collected via surveys and interviews with airline executives, aviation experts, consultants and regulatory bodies.
