Low-cost in the air and on the ground, low-fat and high profit

European travellers have been suffering as Air France pilots went on strike in a dispute over cost cuts. They are angry about the carrier’s plans to expand its budget operations.

This comes as Europe’s airlines try to work out how they can adjust to a changing market dominated by low-cost airlines.

The personal transportation market is also changing, looking at a lower cost model. Traditional taxi drivers don’t like that idea and they caused chaos across Europe this summer by protesting against Uber, a car-sharing service popular in many countries, but facing legal challenges in places.

Healthy food is another competitive market. No-fat, low-sugar and gluten-free food is getting more and more popular. And it looks like what is better for you is also better for companies in terms of profits.
