United's Cleveland Hub Closure Is an Added Plus for Airlines as Industry Consolidates
The Street - about 3 years
CLEVELAND (TheStreet) -- Cleveland may not be happy with the loss of its United hub, but airline analysts applauded the move, widely seen as both inevitable and beneficial not just for United but for other carriers as well. "We've been waiting for this," wrote Wolfe Trahan analyst Hunter Keay, in a report issued Wednesday. "We thought an announcement of a hub closure could come at [United's] November analyst day." Imperial Capital analyst Bob McAdoo said the Cleveland hub closure means that "Cleveland will no longer compete for traffic with United's other hubs" or with flights operated by other carriers. Read: Our College, Mortgage Debt Is Falling, But We Need New Cars "Benefits associated with the reduction in Cleveland service will be shared across the industry," McAdoo wrote in a report issued Tuesday, noting that passengers who had connected through Cleveland are now likely to connect through Philadelphia to the east, Atlanta and Charlotte to the south and Chicago or Minn ...

American Air Is a Sleeper Stock if US Airways/America West Is a Precedent
The Street - about 3 years
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (TheStreet) -- The new American Airlines  went public Monday with a half dozen analysts recommending it. New American may not meet the classic definition of being a sleeper stock, one that is likely to achieve unexpected success. Rather, it is a sleeper because of the promise that could be unleashed by having the America West management team take over American's vast route network, and perhaps because of all the lessons learned from previous mergers including the 2005 America West/US Airways combination. "AAL shares appear to be trading as if this is a typical merger: we believe there is more to the story," wrote Imperial Capital analyst Bob McAdoo in a report issued Monday. McAdoo said he expects schedule changes visible as early as January will show the new management's impact. In a previous report, McAdoo said the America West team could find $1 billion worth of revenue gains by eliminating unprofitable flying, which would buttress the value of the remaining seats. ...

US Airways Can Find $1B in Revenue Gains at AMR, Analyst Says
The Street - about 3 years
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (TheStreet) -- American Airlines has cut costs by $1 billion in bankruptcy, and now the US Airways  management team is likely to find another $1 billion in financial gains from cutting unprofitable routes and better matching aircraft to routes, a veteran airline analyst said. "This transaction is as much about fixing AMR as it is about normal merger integration," Imperial Capital analyst Bob McAdoo wrote in a recent report. McAdoo said he sees "well over $1 billion in opportunities to improve AMR's revenue generation potential and financial profitability, simply by shifting priorities and assets."AMR Corp. has been a chronic underachiever, particularly in generating revenue," he wrote. "AMR has struggled to generate revenue despite having its hubs arguably in some of the largest and most attractive U.S. cities and also having the largest U.S. carrier presence at London's Heathrow Airport, arguably the most important international airport in the world."Shares in existing ...

The Business Journals - about 4 years
Boeing’s 787 will survive its current battery problems and airlines won’t abandon the jet before the issues are resolved, veteran airline analyst Bob McAdoo said at the beginning of the Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance annual conference Monday, “Are carriers likely to get dissatisfied and not go forward?
