airline has been operating under a microscope watch, subject to scrutiny from all sectors.
Consumer confidence also appears to be reducing. Classic’s declining Classic Rewards program measured a 19 percent decrease in the number of Classic Rewards members, and 21 percent decrease in flights per remaining member (Simulation, 2009). This gives Classic Airline an opportunity to identify their program and come up with solutions such as an alliance with another company and/or beef up their Customer Relationship Management (CRM) program implemented four years ago.
In addition, the raising cost, particularly of fuel and labor has limited Classic’s ability to compete for the valued frequent flier

book a Southwest fight through any other avenue than directly through Southwest. While this saves southwest on commission fees and allows them to keep their fares lower, it can be a disadvantage for Southwest as many consumers like to compare rates on travel websites. By Southwest not having a presence on those travel websites, they are losing out on a large portion of the market. With these shortcomings, Untied was able to pull back out of a market and focus their efforts elsewhere without worry of losing income or market share.

ï»¿Lecture 2 Case Study: The Airline Industry Pre and Post 9/11
Question 1: Analyse the attractiveness of the airline industry pre 9-11.
When analysing the attractiveness of the airline industry, Porterâ€™s five forces framework is an important tool that can provide useful insight of the overall profitability potential (and thus attractiveness) of said industry. Generally, in industries where the five forces are high, the attractiveness is low because of too much competition â€“ which in turn leads to limited profitability, if any.

Airports and aircraft will also be examined along with benefits that were, and still are, passed along to the consumer. The paper also discusses the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB), its role in the act and how the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) came into play. How the act was actually an amendment to the Federal Aviation Act of 1958 and not a standalone document as many believed. Additionally, some excerpts from Michael Levine (1965), Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer (2011), and an article penned by Karl

Reducing Airline Fuel Consumption and Cost
Fuel costs have become a major percentage of total airline operating costs. Fuel accounts for roughly 40% of total operating expenses and for U.S. carriers it totaled $47.3 billion last year (Grose, 2013). In an attempt to reduce such high costs, airlines have implemented a variety of fuel saving strategies.
Weight reduction is a major concern for airline fuel savings. Every aspect of aircraft design is looked at from a weight/safety standpoint. Below are a few of the most novel approaches to weight reduction that airlines have implemented in the past few years.

What is Jet Blue’s strategy for success in the marketplace? Does the company rely primarily on a customer intimacy, operational excellence, or product leadership customer value proposition? What evidence supports your conclusion?
Jet blue is an extremely customer focused option in the airline industry. The core concepts of Jet blue lay mainly customer value and product leadership.
