Despite Disney passing antitrust approval from United States, Europe, and India, still awaiting approval from the rest of the regulators, critics of Disney's purchase expressed concern of a significant amount of antitrust concerns. The deal is a horizontal merger (i.e., in which a company buys up a corporation that produces the same goods and products) as opposed to a vertical merger (i.e., two companies that operate at separate stages of the production process for a specific finished product), much akin to the integrations of AT&T–Time Warner and Comcast–NBC Universal. As such, horizontal mergers are more disapproved than vertical mergers, as they effect a more tangible reduction in competition. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) states in its own website that "The greatest antitrust concern arises with proposed mergers between direct competitors (horizontal mergers)."

As an example, on November 3, 2017, Disney banned the Los Angeles Times from attending press screenings of its films in retaliation for the paper's coverage of their political influence in Anaheim, California in September of that year. On November 7, however, Disney reversed its decision, after receiving massive protests and condemnation from a number of major publications and writers including The New York Times, The Boston Globe critic Ty Burr, The Washington Post blogger Alyssa Rosenberg, A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay, the websites The A.V. Club and Flavorwire, and film critic organizations which threatened to disqualify Disney films from their year-end awards in retaliation, specifically, the National Society of Film Critics, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, New York Film Critics Circle, and Boston Society of Film Critics. Jason Bailey, the editor of Flavorwire, thought the way Disney treated the Los Angeles Times was "absolutely chilling", fearing it would only grow more common after the merger:

With the exception of FBN, I feel I get more impartial news from Fox News coverage than from the other news outlets. I have tried watching the other networks, but they either do not report the news fairly or they omit key issues that are important to me entirely. Too often, the bias is so obvious, I feel sickened. by the crassness and ugliness of the show anchors and guests.. I hate the "gotcha" mentality of the press during the press conferences which has led me to believe that the sole purpose of these networks is to try to discredit the president at all costs.
On February 13, 2018, television producer Ryan Murphy, a long-time collaborator of 20th Century Fox Television, signed a five-year $300 million agreement with Netflix, a move considered to be a big blow to Fox and Disney. Murphy cited the Disney–Fox deal as the main reason for departure, arguing that his freedom under Disney might be severely limited in creating new, risk-taking content.

Airport transfers – Everybody needs a way to get to and from the airports they use, and these journeys can be included as part of your booking. Given that taxis and shuttle buses can be expensive, it makes sense to explore your transfer options when you book. Low-cost airlines can look superficially cheap, but if they fly to out of the way airports with poor transport links, the costs of getting into town can mount. So make a point of exploring cut-price transfers.
One film writer stated that "I personally worry that a studio this big will need the press less and less. I don't think anything drastic will change immediately, but I think it is more important than ever for entertainment reporters to uphold journalistic values. We are not their PR arms, no matter how much they'd like us to be." Another film reporter said, "As a critic, I've had Disney tell me they don't want to invite me to [its] film because I didn't like the last one. It really scares me to watch them get even more power."

Flight duration/stop-overs – Most major airlines offer comparable flight durations for the same journey, but it’s worth checking this if you are on a tight schedule. Different plane models perform differently (although the range of jets in use is limited). More importantly, check whether your journey requires a stopover. You’ll find plenty of choices for long-haul journeys, some more attractive (and cheaper) than others.
Unlike most studios, Disney has a reputation for lofty terms and strict conditions being imposed upon theater owners on its films, such as Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. For the latter, Disney demanded a 65% cut of domestic ticket sales (rather than the minimum 55% to 60% cut) along with a four-week hold in each venue and face a 5% penalty to any theater owner who breaks any part of the contract, including taking the film offscreen. If the Disney–Fox deal had happened in late 2016, Disney's domestic box office in 2017 would have equaled $4.5 billion or 40% market share, a figure no major studio has ever hit. For many, the deal would give Disney the unprecedented market power to be abusive without end.
Getting social media savvy may help if you want to increase your odds of finding a last-minute flight. So can signing up for newsletters. In both cases you’ll be the first to know if there are last-minute deals to be had. For starters, add Cheapflights, Delta, United, American Airlines, Air Canada, WestJet and JetBlue to your must-follow Twitter list. And if you’re already abroad and itching for a change of scenery (say, from Paris to Barcelona or Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur), think about following Air Asia or Ryanair.
If an airline has a newsletter, sign up for it. This works particularly well for chartered flights, as they often have spare seats to fill, and the newsletter will keep you informed about last minute flight sales. We highly recommend signing up for the Skyscanner newsletter as we send out the top flight deals weekly. You can also check out our daily flight deals which updates every hour with top flight deals.

In the post-war era, innovation continued, with the introduction of jet engines in the 1950s cutting the journey times for routes such as London to New York, making transatlantic tourism more practical than ever before. The price of air travel continued to fall, opening up package holiday destinations on the Mediterranean Sea (and eventually destinations like the Caribbean). Supersonic passenger travel was even possible for thirty years with the development of Concorde (this has now been discontinued).
