Analysts point to severalfactors that have made the industry a difficult place in which to do business. Over the years,larger carriers such as United, Delta, and American have been hurt by low-cost budgetcarriers entering the industry, including Southwest Airlines, Jet Blue, AirTran Airways, andVirgin America. These new entrants have used non-union labor, often fly just one type ofaircraft (which reduces maintenance costs), have focused on the most lucrative routes,typically fly point-to-point (unlike the incumbents, which have historically routed passengersthrough hubs), and compete by offering very low fares. New entrants have helped to create asituation of excess capacity in the industry and have taken share from the incumbent airlines, which often have a much higher cost structure (primarily due to higher labor costs).The incumbents have had little choice but to respond to fare cuts, and the result has been aprotracted industry price war. To complicate matters, the rise of Internet travel sites such asExpedia, Travelocity, and Orbitz have made it much easier for consumers to comparisonshop, and has helped to keep fares low.Beginning in 2001, higher oil prices also complicated matters. Fuel costs accounted for 32%of total revenues in 2011 (labor costs accounted for 26%; together they are the two biggestvariable expense items). Many airlines went bankrupt in the 2000s, including Delta,Northwest, United, and US Airways. The larger airlines continued to fly, however, as theyreorganized under Chapter 11 bankruptcy laws, and excess capacity persisted in the industry.The late 2000s and early 2010s were characterized by a wave of mergers in the industry. In2008, Delta and Northwest merged. In 2010, United and Continental merged, and SouthwestAirlines announced plans to acquire AirTran. In late 2012, American Airlines put itself underChapter 11 bankruptcy protection. US Airways subsequently pushed for a merger agreementwith American Airlines, which was under negotiation in early 2013.
