Tiger Anticipates Some Indonesian Carriers Will Fold

At Tiger Airways' quarterly results briefing this week, the CEO of the airline, Koay Peng Yen, was asked how Tiger's Indonesian affiliate, Mandala Airlines, is going to expand its operations, in light of the fact there are slot constraints at Jakarta Soekarno Hatta International Airport.

I will leave it to our readers to think about which airlines Koay may be referring to.
