United Airlines pressured to make network changes as its revenue growth remains sluggish

17-Jul-2014 5:00 PM

United Airlines’ prolonged underperformance in revenue generation relative to its US network airline peers has led to growing questions about United’s management of its network, and if certain hubs should be eliminated altogether.

Recently the performance of United’s Dulles hub has come under scrutiny as its proximity to the airline’s gateway at Newark Liberty seemingly diminishes the importance of Dulles in United’s overall network.

The latest bout of criticism for United reflects growing industry curiosity and impatience regarding a timeframe of when the airline could possibly close the revenue performance gap relative to its US peers. Until United begins to show solid signs of improvement, every detail of the airline’s network and operations will continue to be scrutinised, and the criticism is likely to continue.

Ryanair slips into loss in 3Q FY2014 on average fare weakness, but hints at a more stable outlook

4-Feb-2014 8:10 PM

Ryanair’s 3QFY2014 saw it slip into loss, dragging its 9MFY2014 net profit down by almost 8%, mainly because of a 9% drop in its 3Q average fares. However, this yield decline was in line with Ryanair’s guidance and the carrier says that market pricing is no longer declining. Moreover, it reiterated FY2014 guidance for net profit between EUR500 million and EUR520 million. While this is below the EUR569 million net profit recorded in the previous year, the re-confirmed target allayed the fears of some that Ryanair would once again lower its guidance.

As the start of deliveries in Sep-2014 under Ryanair’s new Boeing order approaches, the airline remains committed to its passenger growth targets. In addition to its core attraction of offering the lowest average fares in the European short haul market, Ryanair is aiming to enhance its appeal through a series of customer service and distribution initiatives. In spite of a likely dip in profits this year, if it can achieve its passenger targets without further heavy yield declines, it should retain its position as Europe’s most profitable airline.

US Airways expects a rebound after government shutdown. Plans must go ahead independent of American

24-Oct-2013 9:00 PM

US Airways believes it can recoup lost revenue triggered by a 16 day US Government shut-down after recording reasonably solid 3Q2013 results, including higher than expected unit revenues for the three months ending 30-Sept-2013.

As the outcome of the US Department of Justice (DoJ) challenge to block the merger of American Airlines and US Airways is tough to predict, both carriers are moving forward in network expansion on a stand-alone basis. For US Airways it means international expansion from its Charlotte hub as a means to close the gap in a variable financial performance from 2Q to 3Q, while American appears to be crafting a Pacific strategy that entails a build-up in Dallas/Fort Worth to strengthen its position in the trans-Pacific against United and Delta.

Air Lituanica launches operations, becomes Lithuania’s sole scheduled airline

12-Jul-2013 5:13 PM

Air Lituanica launched services at the end of Jun-2013, making it the first scheduled Lithuanian carrier since the collapse of FlyLAL in 2009 and Star1 Airlines in 2010. Air Lituanica will see Lithuania once again connected to other key European countries through a home-based carrier.

As the largest of the three Baltic states with a land area of 65,300km2, Lithuania has a population of about three million and had a GDP in 2012 of about USD42 billion, according to World Bank data. The country currently has four airports in Vilnius, Kaunas, Palanga and Šiauliai which are served by about 20 foreign carriers.

Aside from Air Lituanica, there are currently five other Lithuanian airlines including five charter carriers (Aurela, Avion Express, DOT LT, Grand Cru Airlines and Small Planet Airlines) and one cargo carrier (Aviavilsa). There have been no domestic services in the country since the demise of FlyLAL.

Brussels Airlines: the long wait for consummation with Lufthansa – Part 2

2-Jul-2013 3:53 PM

Accounts filed in Jun-2013 with the National Bank of Belgium show that the operating loss of Brussels Airlines’ holding company SN Airholding widened in 2012. It has yet to make an operating profit since Lufthansa acquired 45% in 2009, although its ‘Beyond 2012-2013’ restructuring programme aims to bring the company back to profitability by 2014.

Analysis of its unit costs (CASK) show that Brussels Airlines is a little more efficient than other Lufthansa Group national carriers, but much higher cost than the LCCs with whom it competes on much of its European network, which accounts for well over 80% of its seat capacity. The strength of its Europe to Africa operations risks being eroded by growing competition in the transfer market.

It seems unlikely that Lufthansa will exercise its option to buy the remaining 55%, unless Brussels Airlines can demonstrate significant progress towards sustainable profitability before the option expires in Apr-2014.

The “new” American Airlines' hubs: Philadelphia has potential to retain trans-Atlantic flying

1-Jul-2013 1:01 PM

As American and US Airways move to close their merger in Jul-2013 and set out on a complex integration process, speculation over the status of the nine hubs comprising the backbone of the combined network was revived after a report from a US government watchdog questioned Philadelphia’s role in the combined network. Similar queries have also arisen over the status of Phoenix once integration is complete.

The network optimisation that occurs during a merger integration inevitably results in some service cuts and eliminations as unprofitable flights are culled. Southwest has been weeding out AirTran’s unviable routes for the last year (notably, without a huge amount of criticism) as it attempts to complete integration of the two carriers.

While it is natural to assume some hubs might lose prominence in the combined American-US Airways network, the reality is that during the last few years all the major American carriers have undergone network overhauls that resulted in concentrating flying at their hub strongholds, leveraging strength where they have a commanding presence. US Airways and American have notably embraced that strategy, evidenced by US Airways placing 99% of its flying at its Charlotte, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Washington National hubs while American continually touts its cornerstone strategy that entails building its network around Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and New York.
