Growth rates are not consistent in all regions but countries with a de-regulated airline industry have more competition and greater pricing freedom. This results in lower fares and sometimes dramatic spurts in traffic growth. The U.S. Australia Canada Japan Brazil India and other markets exhibit this trend. The industry has been observed to be cyclical in its financial performance. Four or five years of poor earnings precede five or six years of improvement. But profitability even in the good years is generally low in the range of 2–3% net profit after interest and tax. In times of profit airlines lease new generations of airplanes and upgrade services in response to higher demand. Since 1980 the industry has not earned back the cost of capital during the best of times. Conversely in bad times losses can be dramatically worse. Warren Buffett in 1999 said the money that had been made since the dawn of aviation by all of this country s airline companies was zero. Absolutely zero. 87
In view of the congestion apparent at many international airports the ownership of slots at certain airports (the right to take-off or land an aircraft at a particular time of day or night) has become a significant tradable asset for many airlines. Clearly take-off slots at popular times of the day can be critical in attracting the more profitable business traveler to a given airline s flight and in establishing a competitive advantage against a competing airline.
