In this workshop presentation, the author considers the economic outlook for the major U.S. airlines for the years 1995 through 1999. First, a table showing the history of operating income and change in key variables for the years 1978 through 1995 is presented and discussed. Periods of improving earnings, periods of declining earnings, and neutral periods are shown. Next, a table which gives a projection of the five-year (1995-1999) earnings of the major airlines is presented and discussed. Problems that might interrupt a positive earnings trend in the next several years are discussed. They concern recession, fuel prices, labor, new low-fare airlines, and teleconferencing.
