The wheel of fortune ratcheted to a stop in 2015 with U.S. airlines perched at its top. The bad times were behind them, including the ugly bankruptcies and negotiations for survival. In 2015, airlines no longer saw one-third of their operating cost going to pouring $3.25 per gallon kerosene into their planes. Oil prices were on a nearly steady downward pace towards $30 a barrel. Airlines in the U.S. consumed 8,923 million gallons of Jet A in 2015, nearly a 4 percent increase over 2014, but paid 36 percent less for that fuel.

The New York Times In the mid-1980s, more than three decades after Mao Zedong’s communist revolution, David Dixon was one of the first capitalists allowed by a wary Beijing to fly over China in a business jet — with an escort. Three decades later, China has embraced business aviation and is home to Asia’s largest business-jet fleet. After an extended period of rapid growth, it is experiencing growing pains that should be temporary, provided it can further relax its heavy control of its skies and airports.
Reuters The top members of the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee have urged their counterparts in the House of Representatives to move forward on Senate legislation to boost aviation security and authorize the programs of the Federal Aviation Administration.
Slate Some airplane security measures we are all too aware of—miniature bottles of shampoo and X-ray scanners, for instance—while others we know almost nothing about, including how airlines protect their in-flight networks and computer systems from interference or attack. In April, Sen. Ed Markey introduced the Cybersecurity Standards for Aircraft to Improve Resilience Act, or Cyber AIR Act, to address precisely this component of aircraft security by requiring the Federal Aviation Administration to develop cybersecurity guidelines for the aviation industry and also requiring airlines to report cyberattacks to the government.
