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. Koay responded by saying: "There are some operational slot constraints in Jakarta. But we are anticipating that slot constraints may ease up. If you follow what is going on in Indonesia, you will see there are some airlines in Indonesia that are reducing their flights and may not be operating any more." I will leave it to our readers to think about which airlines Koay may be referring to.
