Jens Flottau raises an interesting question in his blog about the Spanish banking industry's shakiness and IAG member Iberia: who might buy a stake in the International Airlines Group?
It's an interesting question for airlines, but it's also an interesting question related to maintenance. With a lot consolidation already done, and new aftermarket partnerships forming daily, what will the airline MRO market look like in a couple of years?
For instance, what will American Airlines do with its maintenance operation? Will Central and Eastern European airline-affiliated MROs consolidate? With the new partnerships and mergers in South America, will they harness more aftermarket power?
