06:02 EDTAAL, UAL, DAL, LUV, JBLUIATA cuts global airline profit forecast for 2014 to $18.7B
The International Air Transport Association announced that the airline industry remains on track to deliver a second consecutive year of improved profitability. This is despite a slight downward revision to its industry outlook for 2014 to an industry profit of $18.7B from the previously forecast $19.7B. The main driver of the downward revision is higher oil prices which are now expected to average $108.0/barrel which is $3.5/barrel above previous projections. The $3B added cost on the industry’s fuel bill is expected to be largely offset by stronger demand, especially for cargo, which is being supported by a strengthening global economy. Overall industry revenues are expected to rise to $745B, $2 billion greater than previously projected. “In general, the outlook is positive. The cyclical economic upturn is supporting a strong demand environment. And that is compensating for the challenges of higher fuel costs related to geo-political instability. Overall industry returns, however, remain at an unsatisfactory level with a net profit margin of just 2.5%,” said Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO. Publicly traded companies in the space include American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV) and United Continental (UAL).

06:26 EDTUAL, AAL, LUV, DALAmerican Airlines stock price too low, WSJ says
The sharp drop in oil prices has come to the benefit of the four major U.S. airline carriers, which account for approximately 80% of the domestic air-travel market, Steven Russolillo of the Wall Street Journal's Ahead of the Tape reports. United Continental (UAL) and Southwest Airlines (LUV) already reported record Q4 earnings, and Delta (DAL) recently reported a quarterly profit as well, the report says. American Airlines (AAL) is slated to reported Q4 results, which are expected to be upbeat, the Journal says. The stock prices of such companies, however, suggests that investors aren't experiencing the full benefits due to weakness with the industry's boom-and-bust nature, the report says. American Airlines's share price, in particular, is too low, and its stock has fallen too much relative to competitors ahead of quarterly results, the report says. Reference Link

07:33 EDTJBLUJetBlue ses Q1 capacity up 14%-16% in Q1, 8.5%-10.5% for FY
The company's outlook does not include the impact of Winter Storm Jonas, which caused over 900 flight cancellations within the last week. For the first quarter of 2016, change in CASM excluding fuel and profit sharing is expected to be between 0.0% and negative 2.0% versus the year-ago period. Excluding fuel and profit sharing, CASM for the full year 2016 is forecasted to grow between zero and two percent year over year. Capacity is expected to increase between 14% and 16% in the first quarter 2016 and between 8.5% and 10.5% for the full year. Severe winter weather caused a significant number of flight cancellations in the first quarter of 2015. This increases JetBlue's 2016 capacity growth rate compared to a scheduled versus scheduled basis by about 2.5% in the first quarter and 0.5% for the full year.
