1. Introduction JetBlue Airways Corporation (JBLU), incorporated in Delaware in 1998, is the fifth largest passenger carrier in the U.S. based on revenue passenger miles. With an average of 800 daily flights, it serves more than 30 million passengers and provides flights to 82 destinations in the U.S., Caribbean, and Latin America. Purpose of this paper is to analyze the current issues of JetBlue and provide strategic solutions. 2. Business Environmental analysis 2.1 The specific business industry World air travel industry continues to grow steeply, but without a steady profitability.
However, the airline industry increases air traffic to smaller airports which benefit Airbus competitors that were building midsize, wide-bodied planes carrying over 300 passengers (Gordon,2018). In 2000 Airbus was 80% owned by the European Aeronautic Defense and Space company and 20% by British BAE Systems (Pitt, Koufopolulos,2012). This helps lower the cost for the consumer and fight it, competitors, as the European Union gives aid to Airbus for their acquisitions. For the consumers, the lower the cost of acquisition is a good entity. Consequently, for Airbus biggest competitors, Boeing, responded from Airbus aircraft by flooding the market with mid-size planes to help the increased volume of air traffic (Hambug,2017).
In research carried out by NCB stockbrokers, 20 million of the 24.5 million passengers travel through secondary airports while using Ryanair. The reason for Ryanairs preference to use secondary airports is the quick turnaround of an estimated 25 minute compared to the 60 minute turnaround in major European airports, which earns Ryanair an extra 4.4 million in revenue each year. The use of uncongested secondary airports aided Ryanair to achieved better punctuality, fewer lost bags and fewer cancelations than any of its European competitors according to the association of European airlines own published statistics. Also critically a fraction of landing and handling fees on these secondary airports are minimal compared to their major counterparts. Ryanair hard line negotiating has even been known to conjour up free marketing throughout these
However, increasing global demand, supply, inflation, and taxes for oil spiked the price per gallon of jet fuel to nearly double the cost during the turn of the century. From 1990 to 2008, the price per gallon of jet fuel skyrocketed from $0.55 to $3.85, increasing by nearly 600%. While many carriers failed to overcome such change, financially stable airlines were forced to boost fares, limit services, and implement additional fees for travelers. At the pinnacle of fuel costs in 2008, American Airlines was the first major carrier in the United States to execute a checked baggage fee, with other carriers quick to follow. Correspondingly, high fuel costs obliterated approximately half of domestic carriers across the United
The man behind the recent success of Ryanair is the CEO Mr. Michael O’Leary. You might ask yourself, “how can one man be of such significance in creating such a successful business?”. Michael O’Leary didn’t create his own low cost strategy model and implement it into the organisation, instead he studied the low cost strategy model of Southwest Airlines and adapted the strategy to suit Ryanair. This strategy was the turning point in the global success of Ryanair. I will now describe to you how Ryanair use their low cost strategy and how they succeed in executing it.
Safety Both aircraft manufacturers have good safety records on recently manufactured aircraft. By convention, both companies tend to avoid safety comparisons when selling their aircraft to airlines. Most aircraft dominating the companies' current sales, the Boeing 737-NG and Airbus A320 families and both companies' wide-body offerings, have good safety records. Older model aircraft such as the Boeing 707, Boeing 727, Boeing 737-100/-200, Boeing 747-100/SP/200/300, Airbus A300, and Airbus A310, which were respectively first flown during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, have had higher rates of fatal accidents. According to Airbus' John Leahy, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner battery problems will not cause customers to switch airplane suppliers.
The company utilized the low-cost carrier (LCC) model in the year 2005. The low-cost carrier model is a business strategy used by airline companies to bring in more customers. The company used a “quantity over price” method to gain more revenue. Other airline companies have used this method in order to increase the total revenue earned by the company. Based on an article from the May 2008 issue of the Airline Business Magazine, Cebu Pacific Air was recognized as the world’s number one most rapid growing airline company.

My cousin, my uncle, and I got our tickets in addition to putting our bags in the van. After that we rode to the airport and waited in line for quite a bit. Then we got some food from Wendy’s before we got on the plane. We got on the plane, it was my first time, so I was happy to be first flying and I loved it. I was up for the whole time since It was my first time on a plane.
The economic growth rate of the emerging countries of 5.2% is the driver of the growth of world air traffic. The Emerging and Asia-Pacific economies continue to display strong growth and will account of 60% of the global growth between 2012 and 2032. As a result of improving economy, people belong to the middle classes will want to fly. The middle class accounts 32% of the world and will be 62% by 2032.
