(Washington, D.C.) OAG Analytical Services, part of Official Airline Guide, is hosting three live-dial in teleconferences to address critical issues facing the industry.
June 11- Airline Irregular Operations: Surviving Summer Storms
1:30 to 3:00 EDT | Register
Nothing causes more grief to travellers and costs to airlines than the summer delays caused by weather. This live teleconference will examine irregular operations, their causes and what can be done short-term and long-term to mitigate their adverse affects on travellers and the airlines.
JetBlue Airways and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey were caught in the eye of the storm in 2007 leading to legislative efforts to reduce the impact on passengers.
Russell Chew, President JetBlue Airways and Tom Bock, General Manager Airspace and Operational Enhancements, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will discuss what has been done to prepare for 2008 storms with Jack Kies, former chief of the FAA Command Center and well-known aviation analyst, Dr. Darryl Jenkins.
June 12- Air Cargo Wild Cards: Security and Environment
1:30 to 3:00 EDT
Register | www.oagcargo.com
The air cargo industry is under continuing pressure by the U.S. government to implement ever increasing security measures for cargo moving on passenger aircraft and, to a lesser extent, all cargo aircraft. Environmentalists are pushing for carbon offsets. There is no indication that the industry has seen the last of these measures, in fact, it can be assumed that they will continue to evolve and grow.
Brandon Fried, President Air Forwarders Association, Richard Fisher, President Falcon Global Edge and Herb Prevost, airline and freight forwarder expert will discuss the issues with Roy Hecteman, Senior Advisor Air Freight and Logistics, OAG Analytical Services and Robert Moorman, Managing Editor, Air Cargo World.
June 26 - Can the Airline Industry be Saved?
1:30 to 3:00 EDT
Soaring fuel costs, teetering economy, congested airways, consolidation . . . where will it all lead? This teleconference will explore the impact on the airline industry and offer insight into potential structural changes to hub operations, route structure, fleet choice and alliances that the carriers may need to take in order to survive.
Panelists include Dorothy Robyn, Principal, The Brattle Group and former senior economic advisor to President Clinton, Vaughn Cordle, CEO and Chief Analyst of AirlineForecasts and Gueric Dechavanne, Managing Director, OAGback Asset Management.
