Along with aviation fuel prices at mounting levels and consumptions on air travel mitigating, airlines are looking for ways to incise costs.


BA suffered an 88% decline in lucrative between April and June and said the business faced its adverse ever time.

It also supposed it would trim down 3% of flights this winter to shrink expenses.

British Airways and American Airlines by now work collectively as partners in the One World alliance which allows member airlines share flight capability and airport facilities.

But it is expected that, if agreed, a new transaction would make out them work much more strongly to struggle to trim down the costs in areas like technology, ticketing and management.

According to the BBC’s business journalist Joe Lynam, British Airways is also eager to protect its rank as an international airline well into the future.

Any sort of concord between BA and AA would be subject towards an authoritarian examination.

The two airlines have up till now failed in the past to put on resistance from the US competition laws for a join, but British Airways supposes that relaxations in set of laws under the Open Skies concord may make this more expected.
