So that only leaves IndiGo & Spicejet and of those two clearly IndiGo is the best candidate on account of their sheer market presence.

In Central America what large airline is available ? Avianca is in Star as is Copa of Panama. AeroMexico is in Skyteam and soon to be 49% owned by Delta which is the mother of Skyteam. None here for membership consideration.

GRJGeorge wrote:On the LCC front...1Time doesn't exist anymore, FastJet at the moment isn't much of an operation, keeps scaling down. FlySafair has a good operation, but only domestic in South Africa at the moment, and not offering more than what Comair can offer. Comair's LCC brand Kulula might probably be pulled in for a few more connections, but not really offering a lot more.
