Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Michael Gallinari, a leading analyst in the Travel and Leisure sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The airline industry has enjoyed a period of record profitability, mostly due to low fuel costs and an economy and culture that enables and promotes air travel. However, market factors are starting to turn against airlines, and they will have to adapt and innovate to satisfy the demands of a consumer base that expects to pay bottom dollar to fly.
