    • Delta Air Lines (DAL +0.2%) launched the first airfare hike of 2016, according to FareCompare.com
    • The price-tracking website reports American Airlines (AAL -0.1%), Southwest Airlines (LUV +2%), and United Continental (UAL -0.5%) have all matched the fare boost of up to $4 per one-way flight.
    • The match by Southwest is important in particular as the carrier is usually the tipping point for an industry-wide raise.
    • The fare increases are most likely outside of the regional pressure that the majors are putting on discounters Spirit Airlines, Frontier, and Virgin America (NASDAQ:VA).
    • Airline stocks are mixed bag on the day. Republic Airways (RJET -14.1%) is down sharply due to a Deutschce Bank downgrade, while there is also nervous trading around SkyWest (SKYW -4.4%). Southwest Airlines is rallying, while a CEO swap has given lift to Spirit Airlines (SAVE +5.9%). Add it all up and the U.S. Global Jets ETF (NYSEARCA:JETS) is flat for the day.

    • Airline fares rose 1.2% M/M in November to follow a 1.5% increase in October, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    • The average fare in November was 3.8% lower than the level from a year ago on an unadjusted basis after promotional activity in the first half of the year factored in.
    • The read on airline fares could calm some anxiety over PRASM forecasts from key carriers. It's also worth noting again that fuel costs are down 40% to 50% for carriers on the year-over-year comparison.

    • Airline stocks confounded some investors this week by not reacting favorably to a sharp drop in crude oil prices or monthly traffic reports which showed improvement in load factors. Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) in particular rattled the market.
    • The focus in the sector remains locked on the key PRASM metric (passenger revenue per available seat mile) which has been guided lower by several carriers due to fare pressure.
    • "We believe there has been a softening in domestic fares in off-peak periods compared to what seen toward the end of October when airlines provided initial guidance updates, " noted Raymond James in an update to investors.
    • Some industry insiders see fares leveling out or increasing next year as airlines adjust to their increased levels of capacity. That development could provide a nice recovery for PRASM with crude oil prices expected to stay low for most of 2016 and booking trends strong.
    • Airlines trading with a forward price-to-earnings ratio below 10 include Spirit Airlines (NASDAQ:SAVE), Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL), United Continental (NYSE:UAL), American Airlines Group (NASDAQ:AAL), SkyWest (NASDAQ:SKYW), and Virgin America (NASDAQ:VA). JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU) and Southwest are just slightly over the 10 PE mark. Many of the above names are listed as top holdings of the U.S. Global Jets ETF (NYSEARCA:JETS).
