41 The Challenges Ahead…. Cost Control Growth CCP Environmental Security Customer ServiceWork Force Planning
42 Airlines largest cost components: (per ATA news release 11/07) Fuel (25.4%)Labor (23.6%)Payments to regional partners (13.7%)Airports….about 6%“The cost of running an airline is up 86% since 2000” (ATA Chief Economist)
43 U.S. and Foreign Carrier Next Generation Aircraft Orders* Source: Boeing and Airbus websites
44 U. S. Airline System Load Factor Average break-even load factor now 76 Source: Air Transport Association 2007
45 Flyer Discontent According to the 2007 Zagat Global Airlines Survey: “Displeasure with U.S. carriers is growing overall, while international carriers continue to fare far better” (7498 frequent flyers,19.7 flights per year) Midwest was the top U.S airline for economy class, and Virgin America for premium class. Singapore Airlines took top honors for both economy and premium services.
46 IATA’s Corporate Air Travel Survey in 2007: Self-service features that respondents (over 10,000) plan to use in the near futureOn-line booking (75%)On-line check-in (61%)Printing boarding passes at home (58%)Common use self service check in (53%)Remote baggage drop off service (33%)Post arrival assistance (28%)Conclusion: Passengers continue to seek greater empowerment, autonomy and independence in determining their travel experience
47 Challenges To Aviation Growth Air Travel Congestion Results in Delays, Missed Connections, Cancellations, Added Expense and Political BacklashAging Air Traffic Control Infrastructure Will Take Years to Modernize. Could Lead to Airport Slot Controls or Demand Management Systems Like Lotteries, Slot Auctions, Peak Period Pricing and Minimum Size Aircraft RequirementsQuality of Customer Service in the Air and on the Ground is Frustrating Travelers. However, Price and Schedules Remain Largest Determinants of DemandIncreasing Security Requirements by Immigration, Customs and TSA Discourages Travel to the U.S. and Irritates Travelers – “Hassle Factor”Environmental Concerns: Emissions and Noise May Increase Carrier Costs, Limit Growth and Lead to Governmental Programs Such As Europe’s Proposed “Emissions Trading Scheme”
