    Company Description Kristen Barson A. The industry is very sensitive to various input costs including fuel, labor, and borrowing costs. This board served numerous functions, the two most significant being determining airlines' routes of travel and regulating prices for passenger fares. In recent years, consumers have experienced higher airfares, additional fees, and fewer flights in certain markets, but also new services and expanded networks. To be sure, other factors have contributed to higher fares, among them a stronger economy, longer average flight distances and, for most of the past few years, some of the highest fuel prices in history.

    Business travelers are more significant to airlines since they travel frequently in a year and they also buy premium tickets that bring higher margins to the airline. The truly great are daring. Airtran is a low fare airline in the US. Once you know what final outcome they need, you lead them to that outcome—you become a trusted adviser who protects them. Without the many intertwining flights and simplified schedules they are able to attract their target market with their lower fares. The basis of differentiation in the airline industry has been through pricing and particularly price discrimination.

    It is for sure to say that domestic travel by air is here to stay for the business and leisure travel. In recent years, the average number of competitors has not substantially changed in markets traveled by the majority of passengers, despite several major airline mergers. The American Eagle carriers and the American Connection carriers provide connecting service from eight of American's high-traffic cities to smaller markets throughout the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. The mergers created larger networks and new connections in some markets.
