Industry News
The Washington Post
Good news for local fliers who don’t want to make the trek to Washington Dulles or Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall airports. Southwest Airlines announced Monday that it will more than double its flights at Reagan National Airport, adding seven new nonstops beginning this summer.
CAPA Centre for Aviation
IATA's recent revision to its airline industry financial forecast grabbed headlines for downgrading the profit outlook for 2014. However, as IATA pointed out, "we continue to expect a significant improvement in airline profits this year compared to 2013". Moreover, Jan-2014 data show that premium traffic is on a rising trend. It does seem that the global economic cycle is turning upwards and CAPA's Capacity Index supports the view that the sector is in a cyclical upswing.
Los Angeles Times
Thanks to declining fuel prices, the nation's airlines reported healthy profits in 2013 and can expect a record number of passengers on international flights this spring. That was the message from Airlines for America, the trade group for the nation's air carriers that has become accustomed to reporting razor-thin profits in the last few years.
Business Standard
Global aircraft engine supplier GE Aviation today said it is collaborating with national airports operator AAI to improve airspace efficiency in Bangalore, Mangalore and Guwahati airports. The collaboration comes through a US Trade and Development Agency grant.

Gallup Business Journal
Gallup has found that one of the most important decisions companies make is simply whom they name manager. Yet our analytics suggest they usually get it wrong. In fact, Gallup finds that companies fail to choose the candidate with the right talent for the job 82% of the time.
Aging populations, global urbanization, and climate change are three significant, evidence-backed trends that are useful for understanding emerging system-scale disruptions. Individually, they are powerful. But taken together, linked through their interconnections, they represent the most important forces that will shape our future societal, governmental, and economic systems. The business community has just as much cause to be worried as the rest of society.
Gallup Business Journal
Businesses operating in a hyper-competitive region such as Asia need an effective pipeline of leaders if they are to continue to grow in the next decade. Survey upon survey shows that the scarcity of individuals with the talent to be successful leaders is consistently rated the biggest human capital and business challenge in Asia. And each country in the region has a distinct leadership development challenge based on how its economy is evolving.
Passing judgments of others and ourselves hampers our ability to learn. By asking questions differently, we can learn more and make better decisions.
