    Former regulator pushing challenge that could lead to Volcker rule exemption for big banks

    A former federal banking regulator is pushing lenders to look into challenging the interpretation of a new law in such a way as to limit the application of the Volcker Rule to all the six largest banks in the country, Yahoo Finance reported. The report said Keith Noreika, previously the acting Comptroller of the Currency, is pushing banks to look into taking the issue to court. The text of what's popularly called the Crapo bill, designed to apply to community banks, has a number of double negatives that cloud the meaning of the bill. If successfully challenged, large banks such as US Bancorp , PNC Financial Services , Capital One Financial and Bank of New York Mellon would be freed of the Volcker Rule that limits proprietary trading.

    Airline stocks suffer broad selloff as economic growth, oil price concerns prompt sector downgrade

    Airline stocks were knocked lower Friday, with the sector on track to suffer the biggest one-day loss in nearly 3 years, as the recent drop in oil prices and concerns over a slowing economy acted as a one-two punch for the group. The NYSE Arca Airline Index slid 5.1% toward a fourth-straight decline. Friday's loss was headed for the biggest one-day loss since Feb. 26, 2016. Crude futures surged 2.4% Friday, as OPEC and its allies reached a deal to cut production, but has declined 22% over the past three months. Lower oil prices lowers fuel costs for air carriers, but it also leads to undisciplined capacity growth that could hurt unit revenue performance. Analyst Hunter Keay at Wolfe Research downgraded the airline sector, saying that while a recession and lower oil are both "toxic" for air carriers, "we trust airlines to react better to a recession that we trust them NOT to behave poorly with lower oil prices." Among the sector's more active components, shares of American Airlines Group Inc. plunged 9.1%, Delta Air Lines Inc. dropped 4.3%, JetBlue Airways Corp. tumbled 5.8% Southwest Airlines Co. lost 4.1% and United Continental Holdings Inc. shed 5.4%. The airline index has lost 6.0% over the past three months, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has declined 5.8%.

    Virgin Atlantic pilots hold Christmas strike, airline says will protect trips

    Virgin Atlantic said on Friday it was aiming to ensure its pre-Christmas flights went ahead as scheduled after hundreds of its pilots voted to strike from Dec. 22 until Dec. 25 in a dispute over union recognition. The Professional Pilots Union (PPU) said its members were taking action because Virgin Atlantic was refusing to recognise it and it had been excluded from talks about changes to benefits.
