In this special edition from the Dubai Airshow, we look at the impact of falling oil prices on the aviation market, the subsidies row surrounding three Gulf carriers, and the future of the airline industry.
Two years ago, the bi-annual event made headlines after Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways made orders over $150bn, pushing them to the forefront of global aviation.
Since then, falling oil prices have left the airlines in a stronger position, but unrest in some parts of the region have taken their toll.
Some of the biggest players in the business, Tim Clark, the president of Emirates Airline, and Akbar al-Baker, the CEO of Qatar Airways, tell Counting the Cost's Kamahl Santamaria how they are maintaining altitude in these turbulent times.
We also speak to al-Baker about the subsidies row where he addresses accusations by US carriers that Qatar Airways received billions of dollars in state support allowing it to lure customers away from the US and European competitors.
