This article examines how the Trans-Atlantic, trans-Pacific, and Europe-to-Asia routes are being explored by low cost long haul (LCLH) carriers. Competition for operating slots and access at international gateways and global alliances make entry into the long haul arena difficult, but some airlines are forging ahead. The article describes how Aer Lingus and Qamtas are moving into the low-fare competition with attractive fares and other passenger amenities. It also points out the existence of frills-seekers, and how their penchant for premium service may result in the customer niche that low cost long haul carriers can accommodate.
