    Airlines will likely continue measures to remain profitable amid economic volatility and high fuel prices, the Transportation Department’s Office of Inspector General says in a report. "[T]he data in this report suggest that some of the most significant trends of recent years — including but not limited to a more consolidated industry with less competition, fewer flight options for small communities, and revenue-enhancing baggage and other fees — may continue for the foreseeable future as airlines further improve their adaptability to changing market forces," the agency report says.

  • ICAO agreement could pave way for EU to cut its ETS
    European Union officials have applauded the United Nations’ International Civil Aviation Organization’s consensus on a new framework for a global carbon emissions plan.
