    Unverified reports by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and Reuters this week suggested a China Eastern Airlines jet that crashed in southern China in March killing all 132 people on board may have “intentionally” nosedived into its fatal descent. “The Boeing 737-800 was cruising at high altitude when it suddenly pitched into a near-vertical descent, plummeting into a mountain at extreme speed. Data from a black box recovered in the crash suggests inputs to the controls pushed the plane into the fatal dive,” the WSJ reported on May 17, citing unnamed individuals “familiar with U.S. officials’ preliminary assessment of what led to the accident.” This initial probe “includes an analysis of information extracted from the plane’s damaged flight-data recorder,” according to the newspaper. “The plane did what it was told to do by someone in the cockpit,” one of the WSJ’s sources alleged. “The information gathered so far in the China Eastern probe has led U.S. officials involved with the investigation to turn their attention to the actions of a pilot,” people familiar with the matter told WSJ.

    AbujaNigerian airlines have suspended plans to ground all local flights due to the soaring cost of jet fuel just hours before the move was due to take effect, the airline operators association said on Sunday.The Airline Operators of Nigeria has been under pressure from the government, consumer protection bodies and customers to shelve the planned shut down since it was announced on Friday.Airlines are complaining about paying for jet fuel upfront in cash at 700 naira ($1.69) per liter, a price that has more than doubled this year, partly as a result of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, increasing their operating costs by around 95%.Dollar shortages in Nigeria and a weaker local currency have worsened the woes for the sector, which also faces the country-wide challenges stemming from double-digit inflation, slow growth and mounting unemployment and insecurity.

    SAN FRANCISCO INT’L AIRPORT (KPIX 5) – People all over the country have experienced pain at the pump lately. But soon, they may start to experience price hikes when buying plane tickets. “If oil prices remain at $100 a barrel or higher for a length of weeks or months, yes, we will definitely see an effect on prices,” said Willis Orlando, with Scott’s Cheap Flights. “Although, there are other factors in the market that may moderate them. But at a certain point, airlines are going to have to decide how much do they pass on to consumers, and how much do they eat in the name of competition.” READ MORE: Bay Area Gas Prices Still Peaking as World Oil Prices Drop Below $100 a BarrelOn Monday, a gallon of jet fuel costed $3.11, according to the Argus Jet Fuel Index. A month ago, it was $2.79 a gallon. “If we’re going to see an effect from the current surge of jet fuel prices, it probably won’t be for a few weeks or even a couple of months,” Orlando told KPIX...
    BOSTON (CBS) – Travelers, you’ve been warned: air fare prices are expected to rise. “There’s a really tight relationship between jet fuel prices and oil prices,” Questrom School of Business at Boston University Economist Jay Zagrosky said. “I’m expecting to see airline prices start rising very soon just like I’m seeing prices at the pump rise.” READ MORE: Public Health Emergency Ending In Boston, But School Mask Policy RemainsAirline prices have already risen in 2022, as demand surges following a travel lull during the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Economists have predicted airline prices to rise by seven percent each month this year. That rise will likely be accelerated thanks to drastically rising gas prices right now, an indirect result of the current warfare in Ukraine. The cost of jet fuel is going up, and as such, airlines will likely pass the expense down to their customers soon enough.

Russia's invasion of Ukraine last month has set off a global panic around fuel supplies. Some analysts expect U.S. carriers to trim first-quarter profit or revenue estimates in the coming weeks after fuel costs rose rose 32% last week alone. The expense is generally airlines' second-biggest, behind labor. "The higher fuel will more than wipe out better revenue near-term resulting in modest reductions to 1Q22 estimates," wrote MKM Partners airline analyst Conor Cunningham in a note. The surge in fuel prices — more than 50% so far this year — is the latest challenge for carriers that expect travelers to come back in droves this year as Covid-19 cases fall. Airline stocks have been among the hardest-hit industries in recent weeks as Russia's...

    An American Airlines flight to London returned to Miami after a passenger refused to follow the federal requirement to wear a face mask, according to the airline. The airline called Miami police, and officers escorted a woman off the plane at Miami International Airport Wednesday evening without incident. A spokesperson for the Miami-Dade Police Department said American Airlines staff dealt “administratively” with the passenger. The woman was put on American’s internal no-fly list pending further investigation, an airline spokesman said. Airlines have frequently banned passengers for the duration of the pandemic if they refuse to follow mandatory mask requirements designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. American said there were 129 passengers and 14 crew members on the plane. Pilots turned the Boeing 777 around less than an hour into the transatlantic flight, according to tracking service FlightAware. Airlines reported nearly 6,000 incidents involving unruly passengers last year and 151 in the first two weeks of this year, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. Most of them involved passengers who refused to wear masks. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All...
    LINTHICUM, Md. (WJZ) – Nearly 2,000 American Airlines flights canceled nationwide were felt Monday at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport. The airline’s disruptions started late last week when high winds shut down its busiest hub in Dallas, making it difficult for crews to get into position for upcoming flights. By Monday morning, nearly 2,000 flights were canceled.

    Air fares are set to soar just in time for the holiday season, as jet fuel pries rise to pre-pandemic levels, the United Airlines CEO warned on Wednesday.  Jet fuel prices are already up more than 100 percent compared to just one year ago, CNBC reports, with the price per gallon set at $2.3282 on Tuesday.  But Scott Kirby, the CEO of United Airlines, said that the prices may go up even further. He forecasted an average fuel cost of $2.39 a gallon in the fourth quarter of the year, as United expects a surge in bookings for the holiday season. 'You know I think in the longer term, it's always been the case at an airline that jet fuel prices go up, usually because demand is strong - and that's going to be true again,' Kirby told the hosts of CNBC's Squawk on the Street on Wednesday. 'Higher jet fuel prices lead to higher ticket prices,' he said. 'Ultimately, we'll pass that through.'   United's competitor, Delta Airlines, last week warned that more expensive fuel would eat at its bottom...
    VIDEO2:1302:13United CEO: Higher fuel prices ultimately lead to higher ticket pricesSquawk Box Jet fuel prices are rising to levels not seen since before the Covid pandemic and it's set to drive up airfares, United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby said Wednesday. "Higher jet-fuel prices lead to higher ticket prices," Kirby told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street." "Ultimately, we'll pass that through." United forecast average fuel costs of $2.39 a gallon in the fourth quarter, when it expects a surge in bookings from the end-of-year holidays and recently loosened international travel restrictions. That's up from $2.14 a gallon in the third quarter and the $2.02 on average it paid in the fourth quarter of 2019. Kirby said higher demand usually drives fuel prices up. The increase in demand is a welcome trend for an industry that continues to struggle to return to profitability. United posted a $473 million profit for the third quarter, thanks to $1.1 billion in federal aid, though a surge in delta-variant cases of Covid-19 weighed on its bottom line. The Chicago-based airline reiterated that it expects its 2022 costs,...

    DALLAS (AP) — President Joe Biden and his team are promoting an agreement reached with the U.S. airline industry to cut aircraft greenhouse-gas emissions 20% by decade’s end, but the deal might not fly. In an announcement Thursday, the White House unveiled an array of measures to reduce climate-changing emissions. The administration is also setting a goal of replacing all of today’s kerosene-based jet fuel with cleaner or “sustainable” fuel by 2050. Climate experts say that while the effort is laudable, the administration’s approach is aspirational and unrealistic. The targets are voluntary, and robust government support will be needed to offset the higher cost of sustainable fuel — up to three times more than regular fuel. Airlines in fact have talked up sustainable jet fuel for years and even made small investments in it, but it may prove to be a vision beyond Biden’s promised reach. Airline executives have expressed concern in particular that “flight shaming” — famously advocated by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg — could catch on in the U.S. if the companies are seen as uncaring about the...
    SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — The cell phone of a passenger on an Alaska Airlines jet caught fire after the plane landed at the Sea-Tac International Airport, forcing the crew to deploy evacuation slides to get everyone off, the carrier said. Crew members on the New Orleans to Seattle flight used a battery containment bag Monday evening to put out the fire, KOMO-TV reported, citing an an Alaska Airlines spokesperson. Haze in the cabin forced the crew to use the plane’s evacuation slides to passengers off the jet, KOMO-TV reported. Passengers were taken by bus to the terminal and some suffered minor injuries, the airport said in a tweet. KOMO-TV reported that were 128 passengers and six crew members on board the flight.

    New York (CNN Business)The seats are full on most planes, but in some cases, the fuel tanks are not.At several western US airports, there's not enough jet fuel to meet the increased demand for leisure travel. That could end up causing some flights to be canceled or force airlines to make extra stops to fuel up on longer routes.Part of the problem is the shortage of tank truck drivers needed to deliver fuel. An estimated 20% of tankers nationwide are parked due to a lack of qualified drivers, according to an industry trade group. That shortage has already been affecting gas stations.But airlines and airports are also struggling to get the fuel they need because pipelines shifted away from carrying jet fuel when air travel ground to a near halt last year. Now jet fuel isn't getting the pipeline space it needs to keep up with the recent surge in air travel."The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the pipelines, and the airlines need to work together to allow space on the pipelines to ship the needed jet fuel to the airports,"...
