a cocktail napkin during
a meeting between
Herb Kelleher and Rollin King.

  • POLITICAL
  • Deregulation in 1978
  • 1st big political win for airlines
  • Post 9/11
  • Gov. helped 2 major airlines get out of
    financial trouble
  • ECONOMIC
  • When economic conditions are unfavorable
  • - Airliners very susceptible / vulnerable
  • - Discount airlines see profits
  • - People look for cheaper travel options

11
P.E.S.T.E.L
  • SOCIAL
  • Flying on planes to get to where you need to be
    has been the norm for the last 30 years and will
    continue to be the norm in to the foreseeable
    future.
  • As more and more Spanish speakers come to live
    and travel in the US there is more need for
    airlines to be bi-lingual.
  • TECHNOLOGICAL
  • Some airlines have converted to e-tickets, and
    have a self checking machine.
  • Many people use the internet to compare prices to
    find the best option for their trip.

12
P.E.S.T.E.L
  • ENVIRONMENTAL
  • Airlines have cut prices and offered expensive
    frequent flyer programs just to grab customers
    away from other airlines.
  • The regular airlines are starting to get away
    from the hub system and switch to the point to
    point system that SW uses.
  • LEGAL
  • Legal issues have hindered airlines from making a
    full 9/11 recovery.
  • According to the Air Transportation Association
  • Airlines constitute about 2/3 of FAA-controlled
    flights but pay more than 90 of the bill. In
    return, the airlines are stuck using a 1950s
    ground-based, radar-dependent navigation system
    with legacy facilities and processes.

13

In The News…
  • Airlines are constantly in search of new revenue
    sources. Travelers have gotten used to paying for
    food on board. But it's going to be harder to
    adjust to fees for services that used to be
    free.
