    • Airbus (OTCPK:EADSF, OTCPK:EADSY) says production of its first U.S.-built jetliner, the A321, is several weeks behind schedule due to tooling problems, but that it expects to deliver the plane on time to JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) in Q2 2016.

    • Broader macroeconomic concerns, government probes, and capacity worries are now weighing heavy on the sector.
    • It's an odd time for the sector, notes S&P Capital IQ's Jim Corridore. “The airlines are probably doing the best jobs running their businesses in the history of the industry,” notes the analyst.
    • Airlines recorded record profit in Q2.

    • The average fare was also 5.6% lower than the level from a year ago on an unadjusted basis.
    • Lower jet fuel expenses and an increased focus on price collusion in the sector are both in the background.

    • Airline stocks are on watch as U.S. crude oil prices hit their lowest level in six years.
    • The sector hasn't rallied with the same vigor as it did with previous swings lower in oil which has some analysts calling for a delayed rally.
    • Though many companies left some savings on the table due to hedging activity, fuel cost per mile flown ranged lower by 20% to 45% in the sector during Q2.
    • Earlier this week, Raymond James pitched the case that airlines will use fare increases to cover rising labor costs, leaving fuel expense savings for balance sheet moves.
