Fitness tracker company — and more recently, smartwatch company — Fitbit Inc (NYSE:FIT) isn’t likely to ever topple the ubiquitous Apple Inc.

The San Francisco-Tahiti route becomes the lucky 13th new international route announced by United in 2017.

Southwest Airlines (LUV), DIA’s No. 2 carrier, touched down on-time 84.6 percent of the time, making it No. 7 nationally.

Some mammoth public corporations have been very late to articulate their sexual harassment policies, at least to the broader public.
United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz this morning delivered a forceful message on the hot topic of the moment — sexual harassment — in a memo to more than 87,000 United employees. The memo came in the wake of a blunt op-ed piece in the Washington Post on Sunday penned by Sara Nelson, the often outspoken international president of the Association of Flight Attendants, the union that represents thousands of United flight attendants. Nelson in her piece decried how the airline industry has over the years objectified female flight attendants for marketing purposes.
Post-hurricanes, things are looking up for stocks in the airline space. Higher demand for air travel bodes well for the sector participants.
Spirit Airlines Incorporated (NASDAQ:SAVE) and SAVE stock appear well-positioned for growth. The Miramar, Florida-based carrier has enjoyed lower cost and higher growth than its peers, including its much-loved rival Southwest Airlines Co (NYSE:LUV). This uptrend, along with industry-leading growth numbers, position the stock to fly even higher.
United Airlines, in its November operations report released late last week, showed significant traffic growth year over year in every region except Asia Pacific, where traffic was down 3.2 percent. United has long boasted that it has the (so-far) best-developed Asia-Pacific route system of any United States-based airline, including American Airlines and Delta Air Lines. But United also is facing growing competition from a host of Asia-based carriers looking to transport passengers between the United States and the Asia-Pacific region.
The Association of Flight Attendants has called sexual harassment a 'silent epidemic.'
Two of the four largest airlines in the U.S. recently raised their fourth-quarter unit revenue outlook. Could this be the beginning of a broader revenue and margin recovery for the airline industry?

In a statement, United said of Olson's move: "Jim has decided to leave United to pursue professional and personal aspirations outside the company.
United Airlines has tapped Kate Gebo, a rising star in the United executive ranks, as the Chicago-based carrier's new executive vice-president of human resources and labor relations.

Shares of United Continental (UAL) are higher on Friday, after the airline reported strong November traffic metrics and stock buybacks. In addition, United announced a new $3 billion share repurchase plan, representing about 17% of its market cap. While we believe investor expectations have been moving higher in recent weeks (to the upper half of prior guidance ranges or above the high-end in some cases), we do not think most were expecting upward revisions in the November traffic reports prior to the quarter-end updates released in early January.
Among the companies with shares expected to trade actively in Friday's session are Amazon.com, Caterpillar, Alexion Pharmaceuticals, 3M, United Continental and American Outdoor.
United Continental (UAL) unit reports rise in traffic figures for November on high air travel demand. Simultaneously, the company raises fourth-quarter PRASM view.
