Crowded skies: Traditional carriers join discount long-haul rush

With fares as low as 99 euros for a transatlantic flight, long distance travel has never been cheaper. It's a market that's attracting many of the traditional carriers such as Air France, and IAG - which owns British Airways and Iberia. They're trying to get in on the act pioneered by the likes of Norwegian Air, one of the trailblazers in the sector. Stephen Carroll asks Norwegian's CEO Bjorn Kjos what he makes of the new competition.

Also on the programme:

  • We take a look at the big investment winners of 2017, a record year for many markets.
     
  • And we head to Yiwu, China's capital of Christmas, which makes 60% of the world's decorations.
