In this edition of mba Aviation’s Insight Series, Ryan Cross analyzes how the A220 stacks up against its competitors. He weighs the A220-100 against the Embraer E195-E2 and the A220-300 against the A319ceo and A319neo.
- The A220-100 fills the niche for aircraft carrying about 110 to 125 passengers, but this type has sold in relatively small numbers.
- Airbus’ orderbook reveals how the A319neo has sold poorly: the airframer counts 84 net orders for the type, amounting to just 1.1% of the entire A320neo family backlog.
- The A319neo offers unappealing operational economics compared to the popular A320neo and A321neo. This explains why the similar A220-300 has sold better.
In this edition of mba Aviation’s Insight Series, Steven Harokopus takes a look at the impact of Covid-19 on capacity planning and revenues.
The eight largest US air carriers by revenue have reduced capacity to varying degrees in response to lower demand and in an effort to save costs through smaller operations.
In the first half of 2020, the Subject Airline reduced their offering of available seat miles (ASM) approximately 43%, compared to the same period last year Despite this drastic reduction in capacity, revenues per ASM decreased by an average of US¢2.6.
LCCs took advantage of their flexibility and maintained more capacity compared to their mainline competitors. Southwest reduced capacity the least, cutting only 32% with a RASM reduction of US¢4.4. Among the three mainline carriers American maintained the most capacity allowing them to overtake Delta in revenues for the first half of the year, even with a US¢3.2 reduction in RASM.
