a norwegian low cost carriers with long haul ambitions.
The article points to the number of failures for such carriers startyed
with Sir Freddie Laker,s "Skytrain" which lasted only 5 years.
I look at Air Canada which tried a low cost division and quickly folded
it back into its mainline fairly quicily and is trying again with "Rouge".
Qantas has tried with Jetstar, and isn't doing particularly well
(perhaps because Jetstar is hurting Qantas). They were also supposed to
launch a long haul low cost division, not sure if they ever did.
Are there examples of a legacy carrier having succesfully run a low cost
division that has worked without cannabalising its high cost operations ?
