Nowadays, many airlines across the globe have found themselves in a predicament. The crisis has taken its toll on the work of low-cost airlines, while forcing major players to slash ticket prices to lure customers aboard underloaded flights. That said, aircraft giants Boeing and Airbus posted record sales in 2014, having delivered 723 and 629 airliners respectively. Moreover, they have reported orders for 1,432 and 1,456 airplanes, respectively, for the future. The explanation for the disparity is quite simple: the crisis pushes inefficient companies out of the market, thereby presenting unique growth opportunities to other companies. Experts rate Uzbekistan Airlines among the favorites as within a relatively short period the company has managed not just to carve out a niche in a tough and competitive market, but also to outstrip rivals in many respects.
