Now's the time to buy Asian airlines, says HSBC aviation analyst Mark Webb. Airline share prices have absolutely collapsed over the past year on economic uncertainty and risk aversion.

    Is the collapse in oil prices why airlines are scrambling to charge you for every scintilla of purported "service" that they provide?
