Report Overview

In this second edition of the Long Haul Low-Cost Series, we explore why there’s a real opportunity for low-cost airlines to foray into long-haul operations profitably. Our analysis includes the financial performance of low-cost airlines in the U.S. that have recently started operations over the Atlantic. We also include an analysis of whether the low-cost advantage of LCCs is big enough to overcome legacy airlines’ advantage as they operate a multi-cabin configuration on their aircraft. Does the cost advantage offset the premium cabin advantage that legacy airlines have?
