 SIA's Chew surprised at Qantas merger talk but says consolidation due - Forbes.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
SYDNEY (AFX) - Singapore Airlines (SIA) chief executive Chew Choon Seng said he was surprised politicians from the city-state and Australia were talking up prospects of a merger with Qantas Airways but added consolidation in the airline industry was overdue.
Chew said he had not expected comments from Australian Prime Minister John Howard and Singapore Transport Minister Yeo Chow Tong last month canvassing the prospect of a merger between the regional rivals.
Without naming any potential partners, Chew said a merger was appealing in the current environment but airlines' status as national icons made such link-ups harder than they were in industries such as banking and car manufacturing.
