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). The “Superjumbo” A380 was in limbo. Superjumbo aircraft that can carry up to 850 passengers were now being looked as an eyesore and losing money (Pitt, Koufopolulos,2012). Airbus “superjumbo” was designed to perform everything the Boeing 747 does. The jumbo aircraft has the capability to fly over 8000 nautical miles without refueling, making it the ideal choice for long-distance flights (Pitt, Koufopolulos,2012).
Nonetheless, the purpose of this paper is to analyze the fluctuating variable costs and slowing economy that have severely impacted the airline industry, resulting with the impending loss of airlines and difficult market entry.

This proves that this online service is significantly surpassing these stable hotel chains that have been competing in the industry for over 60 years. Along with this, a recent report by HVS Consulting & Valuation found that “hotels lose approximately $450 million in direct revenues per year to AirBnb” (Orourke). Although Marriott International has been performing with a 45% increase in revenues from 2012 to 2016, Airbnb has definitely had an impact on the consumer perspective of traditional hotel rooms. In addition to this, hotels also lose over $108 million of food and beverage revenues as a result of guests not spending their money at the hotel’s restaurant. The use of other services, like the
For quite some time telecom and network companies had been overvalued; when the market finally turned against them, many analysts predicted a hard road for Cisco. Cisco at first seemed to ride above the fray, announcing its 14th consecutive very strong quarter in August 2000. But in early 2001 the fallout hit; Chambers responded by firing 15 percent of his workforce and cutting his own salary to $1 a year. Chambers stayed the course, continuing with what had worked for him in the past: acquisitions. Cisco acquired Linskys in 2003 for $500 million worth of stock; in 2004 it acquired Latitude Communications, a company that specialized in conferencing systems, for $80 million in cash.

The intense competition in the industry has caused SIA’s average passenger load factor to decrease for the third consecutive year. In FY2014/2015, the passenger load factor of 78.5% did not meet the breakeven load factor of 79.5% for flying the planes. To counter this problem, SIA has increased the frequency of flights to Australia to counter competition from Eithad Airways. The airline also set up Scoot, a budget airline and expanded capacity with SilkAir in response to competition from budget airlines. SIA is also potentially increasing its stake in affiliate company, Tiger Airways, and has diversified its strategic investments in order to keep pace with its competitors.

It is nearly 60% more costlier than competing markets in the Middle East and ASEAN regions. This is due to the myopic vision in framing tax policies at the central and state level. Indian carriers half of the operating cost is through the procurement of this raw material - ATF. This explains the reason why the domestic flight ticket charges in India are often more expensive than a three day weekend tour package in Malaysia and Thailand. This is a serious impediment to the tourism potential of India.
These aircraft replace PIA quickly. A310, on the other hand, reduced oil consumption 737-900ER 5.500 $ 2.500 $ oil. In addition, an 85% occupancy rate and 12.5 hours daily use of aircraft, an additional 72 million or a gain of $ 720 million. The air of employment, which is currently widespread in airplanes to 776, will sink the highest in the world to a time adjustment. In addition, the shortest route B777 is used for long journeys.
