Deutsche Bank sees consolidation in the global airline industry as a way out for pressured carriers, as it identifies Qantas (QUBSF.PK) ripe for the picking. In addition, analysts with the bank believe AirAsia (AIABF.PK), Air China (AIRYY.PK), Delta Air Lines (DAL), United Continental (UAL) and US Airways Group (LCC) are in the mix to seek partners to improve capital efficiency.

    The biggest problem the airline industry has today is the taxes on everything they buy or sell. The fuel they use is taxed, the tickets they sell are taxed, and in the end, about 50% of the cost of an airline ticket ends up going to one government or other, directly or indirectly. Governments are killing the goose that lays golden eggs.
