CEO PANEL DISCUSSION: Future airline business models – Consolidation, ultra-long-haul, evolving LCCs and new types of revenue

What will be the further impact of consolidation and will we see any further mega-mergers? After recent failures what is the future of low-cost long-haul and does this prove that the model is not economically viable? What is the business case for ultra-long-haul routes, and does it actually make economic sense for airlines? How can airlines capitalize on passenger trends such as digital travel spending and personalization to generate new types of revenue?

Technology & Strategy Roundtables

With rising passenger expectations and rapidly changing technology, how can we as an industry evolve to meet these challenges? Our roundtables are hosted by senior level topic specialists. Participants are asked to introduce themselves to the table, and then as a group, they brainstorm and produce their suggestions on what technology would work best for them. After 30 minutes, there is one rotation, so participants can join two tables during the session.
