But now, the tables are turned as a variety of different things are conspiring to make life very difficult for the European legacies.
Low-cost rivals, emissions schemes, labor issues, and threats from Gulf carriers are enough to make observers look positively at the relatively rosy situation of U.S. counterparts.
