Airlines in the US - August 2018
“Rising costs are causing US airlines to raise fares, even including the ULCCs [ultra-low-cost carriers] but margins are under pressure. The US aviation sector has encountered minimal competition from high-speed rail so far, but this is set to change in the medium term. The trend towards consolation of the sector is likely to continue.”
