The Airline Industry
Several airlines, American Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Jet Blue, and many others are struggling today. This sector-wide drop is not only related to oil prices rising but also due to increased competition from European airlines planning on expanding to the United States. Additionally, the C.E.O. of Delta Airlines announced today that they plan to add more planes. The addition of more airplanes has the potential to lower profits. While the airline sector is low today, it is worth noting that their sales are still growing. They could get more wind behind their wings in the future weeks.
