Airline Weekly Lounge Episode 63: All Smiles (Sponsor)


While the revenue story has improved for U.S. carriers, the cost story has become a headwind. Still, as American Airlines demonstrated in its fourth quarter results, costs are a headwind that can be overcome. With that, AA joined Delta and United in delivering solid fourth quarters and downright strong full-year results.

Airline Weekly Lounge Episode 61: Worse, but still good (Sponsor)


Rising labor costs at Delta dented its fourth quarter results significantly—but not enough to prevent the airline from posting a terrific profit for 2016. And the big story within the story is that revenues have stopped falling. All in all, Delta remains bullish, which is a nice way to kick off earnings season.

So, has the natural order shifted from United being a perennial laggard to leader?

SAS has tried and tried to turn itself around, but to no avail—at least judging by its recent earnings report. In fact, on profits alone, the airline’s third quarter was a step backward. What’s going wrong, and can it be fixed? Meanwhile, Frontier Airlines posted a tremendous profit in the third quarter, with an operating margin among the best of the best.

 Airline Weekly Lounge Episode 58: Reductive Reasoning (Sponsor)
