Airline Weekly Lounge Episode 5: Cold Comfort in Canada

August 18, 2015

Canada may be a cold place, but right now its two major airlines are cruising along with comfortable profit margins. Still, what we’re seeing from WestJet and Air Canada is a far cry from what U.S. carriers are experiencing. Why is there such a disparity of results within North America?

Also, we head to the Korean peninsula to talk about Asiana and Korean Air, both of which endured a number of challenges in their second quarter, including a MERS virus outbreak and a weakening cargo industry. And if that weren’t enough tumult, China is now devaluing its currency. Plus, we touch on Finnair, Jet Airways and Air Berlin.
