Why Airlines Need Competition

Why Airlines Need Competition

The airline holds a virtual monopoly for intra-Caribbean flights, and it shows. Once they canceled a flight because of “technical reasons”. Most people realised that the real reason was economy as the flight was poorly booked. No apology, let alone compensation. Another time I almost missed a flight because it left half an hour early. Since I only had hand luggage it was so convenient to kick me out. On numerous occasions my luggage was lost and in most cases I had to go to the airport myself. Another time I was refused boarding although I had a confirmed booking even though I could show the itinerary printed by a travel agent.

Today I was on a flight to St Maarten. While in transit in Antigua I was given a boarding pass for a late afternoon flight, while I remembered having booked a 5 hours earlier morning flight.  Initially the check in agent said the flight was full, but later it appeared there was a free seat. The Antigua supervisor on duty, only wanted to put me on the earlier flight without a penalty if I could provide evidence that I booked the earlier flight. She also acknowledged that it could have happened that the reservation was changed because the earlier flight was full and admitted that it would have been illogical to book a flight with a 6 hour transit time. Only by paying a penalty I was allowed on the earlier flight. However that flight did not depart because of engine problems.  

Time after time the flight was delayed with consecutive announcements that the flight would leave in half an hour. When we were called in to go to the gate we were asked to wait in an assembly line. We all had to stand for 20 minutes. Upon arrival in St Maarten after waiting 40 minutes for my bag it was not there. There was no agent to deal with baggage complaints; other agents said there was nobody fromthe airline around and I would best go to the ticket office. They in turn referred me to the (only) check-in agent. After waiting in line for passengers to check in a note was made on a minuscule piece of paper. After arrival of the later flight I called all their numbers in St Maarten; none of the phones were answered. Later, when I took a taxi to the airport, I was told that this happens when they are busy with an incoming or departing flight. After spending some time chatting to passengers who missed their international flights because their Liat flight came in late -they were waiting for hours without any care-, I finally got my luggage at 4:45 pm. My afternoon was ruined.

On the return trip there was only an hour delay but again: no luggage. Two days later I finally got it.

The attitude of their staff is generally friendly, but there are exceptions that I would not call rude, but are clearly not interested in providing  fair service to their customers. Possibly they are instructed by their management to avoid complimentary services at any cost.

After their only major competitor dropped out,they drastically increased their prices. Some time ago, they hired all pilots of a small competing airline -all at the same time-, driving that airline practically out of business.  As sad as it is, there is no alternative for Intra-Caribbean travel, except the boat, which -at times- can be faster and In the Northern Caribbean where several small regional airlines are active.

Tourists arriving in the Caribbean with intercontinental flights usually have 2 free baggages. As this airline does not participate in checking through to final destination anymore (there seem to be no arrangements anymore with other airlines to issue intercontinental tickets including theirs), passengers have to check in again. And get presented with hefty luggage charges which are never waived as far as I have observed.

On the positive side,they provide comprehensive Intra-Caribbean flights throughout the whole region which are a necessity. The moral of this article: Be careful when you fly on routes ruled by one airline only. The lack of competition is not good for their commercial and service attitude.

How airlines go green?

How airlines go green?

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is becoming increasingly important in business. The airline industry, being highly concentrated, aims to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage and remain viable. Particularly, after the recent credit crisis that has caused airfare prices to decline significantly, airlines need to act responsibly and convince their customers that they really care for the environment.

 

Although cars and trucks are typically to blame for their gas emissions and their detrimental impact on the environment, airlines are also to blame. Although aircrafts are extremely efficient while in high altitude, they burn up about 85 percent of their total fuel during take-off. The increase in carbon dioxide emissions is the result of the increase in passenger and freight travel. In other words, if the aircraft is full, it will burn more energy because it will be heavier.

 

Because the engines for most commercial aircrafts are huge, their re-engineering for improved carbon emissions is a process that requires systematic efforts, time and money. Yet, in the context of corporate social responsibility, airlines have taken action.

 

Major airlines (British Airways, Continental Airlines, Qantas Airways, Japan Airlines and many others) have launched a carbon-offset program that allows passengers to offset the carbon dioxide emissions caused by their flights. Passengers calculate the per-passenger emissions per flight and buy carbon dioxide credits that are invested in a variety of environmental projects such as grants for renewable energy sources, tree-planting projects and improvements to energy efficiency. Airlines are active in promoting the carbon-offset program through press releases, magazine articles and emails to executive club members. One hindering factor has been the rise in fuel prices that has put off passengers from paying for additional costs.

 

The high costs of fuel and gasoline have forced airlines to employ the mass transit system. In fact, mass transit can demonstrate improved fuel efficiency and its usage increased since the hike in gasoline prices. Besides, studies suggest that there is an inverse correlation between energy consumption per capita and urban population density as far as public transportation is concerned. This can reduce travel distances and fuel consumption. By applying this concept in an airline, not only it makes air travel more affordable, but it is also environmentally friendly. It’s actually like breaking down the airplane in smaller airplanes, all going the same direction.

 

Northwest Airlines does not use spoons in its in-flight meals suggesting that the aircraft becomes lighter if 400 passengers of a jumbo jet are served three meals during a flight with fewer cutleries. Other airlines are using lighter catering trolleys, remove in-flight magazines, put duty-free catalogues onto the seat-back televisions and load less water (both bottled and in the tank). They do anything to make the airplane lighter.

 

Aircraft seats are also expected to be up to 30% lighter than the current ones, made of composite replacing aluminium. Besides, the shields for the in-flight televisions are made of reinforced carbon fibre, which reduces their weight by 50%.

 

The airline industry is constantly looking for ways to intensify the use of alternative carbon-free bio-fuels, aiming to account for up to 6% of the industry total by 2020. In this effort, there are also challenges faced, deriving mainly from the political environment of the airlines. There are many different views on climate change as well as different levels of awareness surrounding the topic, leading to different views in regards to necessary action.

 

The fact that aircrafts contribute to environmental pollution has forced air carriers to find ways to become environmentally friendly, while maintaining their market share and profitability. Major airlines have accepted to make efforts towards the reduction of their emissions after being pressurized by civil society and political groups. From one side, increased passenger traffic and freight travel leads to increased profitability. On the other side, their public image is far more important if they seek to be leading players in a highly concentrated industry.
