Some Airlines Say, "What Crisis?"
We thought it's all doom and gloom for airlines. We were wrong. There are airlines out there who haven't heard the words global economic recession.
German low-cost carrier Air Berlin is one of them. They're out there trying to hire three to four hundred new flight attendants, while tons of other airlines are getting rid of them (so there should be plenty of good candidates).
And perennial over-achiever Emirates is thinking along the same lines. They've announced they'll increase capacity by 14% this year, although they do concede that this increase is lower than it's been in other years. At least we know a couple of more-likely-to-be-recession-safe airlines we can book some flights with.
