Well I don't get too excited about the Olympics.
I just hope you don't build too many new hotels etc for 2012 to house all
those overseas visitors as I doubt if you will see all that many.
British Airways merging with American Airlines is only the start of it all.
Qantas is also looking for a partner with whom to merge.
Some analysts give the airlines barely the four years to get to the next
Olympics. I went to Melbourne a couple of weeks ago and the flight I had
booked was cancelled. They won't admit it but what is happening is if a
flight is not full they cancell it and shift the bookings to flights either
side of that time.
It is common sense of course but it is a survival technique.
See if I am not right; the 2012 Olympics will have much smaller attendance.
the 2016 Olympics either will not happen or will be competitors only.
It will be a TV event.
