Low Cost Carriers (LCC's) are widely perceived as having led the airline merchandising revolution, but the rest of the industry has caught-up. Now, as every airline and travel company looks to the future, the challenge becomes "Are you bold enough?" With legacy carriers like British Airways and LATAM charging for onboard food and other ancillaries, the brand lines between LCC's and "traditional" airlines are blurring. With every ancillary now on the table, now is the time to re-examine everything. "Are you bold enough?" to rise to these challenges was the theme of the 11th Ancillary Merchandising Conference (AMC) held in Palma, Spain.
