    • Alaska Air (NYSE:ALK) fell 1% today after Raymond James downgraded shares to Market Perform from Outperform, citing risk to 2015 earnings estimates from intensifying competitive capacity pressure.
    • While Q1 2015 schedules are still preliminary, the firm predicts competitive seat capacity growth accelerating to 12% Y/Y from the already elevated ~6% Y/Y level over the previous six quarters.
    • Meanwhile, rival Delta (NYSE:DAL) has shed more than 4% since it said Wednesday that revenues would be lower than it anticipated; Wolfe Research notes that DAL's PRASM is still growing faster than its CASM, which means margins are expanding, but the rate of margin change is likely to be slower than United Continental (NYSE:UAL) and American (NASDAQ:AAL) due to DAL's capacity choices.

    • Southwest Airlines (LUV -0.1%) has delivered strong growth rates this year with an increase in capacity and average trip length, although not all investors may be pleased, notes Morgan Stanley.
    • In an interesting breakdown, the investment firm tabulates that the top 5 Southwest Airlines shareholders also hold a cumulative position of $14.4B in American Airlines (AAL -1.4%), Delta Air Lines (DAL -0.8%), and United Continental (UAL -1%) - airliners which might not benefit from Southwest's willingness to brush aside a tight capacity stance.
    • Those shareholders might end up better off if Southwest stuck to GDP-linked capacity growth rates, reasons UBS.
