Alright guys, I have a research paper due in a business class. In doing so I have to present three new/recent trends that will shape the airline industry in the next decade. So I'm asking for a little brainstorming assistance from the collective intelligence of a.net.

Here's what I've got so far:
1. Fuel Prices
2. The recent success of the LCCs(from an economic perspective)
3. The influx of new airplanes being developed and the individual strategies they represent.

Please, please comment, advise, shoot back whatever you think, critical or otherwise. I'm interested to hear what you all think. Anything to do with international travel is fine, but let's keep it in terms of the US economy.

Pay cuts for established workers average 50 to 25 percent.

Unions powerless in BK climate of US

Along with your num 3 the changing theories on hubs

What would happen if all the Legacies die off. Would their still be LCCs?

Accelerated demise of older pension plans to 401k style as an industry standard

EU replacing national government control of carriers

Internet influence in fare determination

Paperless ticketing

New ability to finally increase fare to reflect raising costs

Slower ability of the airline industry to match the higher prices of all other markets.

As a business model you might discuss a governments interest to insure sane pricing in the industry.

What is sane pricing?

Comparison of climates Legacies versus LCCs evolved in.

"Quality" versus new "commodity" of airline service.

Effects of possible backlash from passengers who want flying Wal-marts and industry standards of service they believe a price deserves while that prices decreases in scale from when those "standards" were made.

Are you sure you want to do this?



Less sarcasm and more thought equal better understanding

Thanks. I'll take those under advisement.

No I'm not sure I want to do this but I don't have a choice....
