  • why only control low cost airline that also only the local low cost carriers. What about other low cost and for that matter all other airlines. As long as the airlines do not collude to fix prices they should allowed to operate freely because during low traffic season they have to bear the losses. Also airline is a high risk business. So they must sufficient incentives to operate. Will the people or the government willing to save a private airline.?
