    U.S. Airways (LCC +0.1%) remains Imperial Capital's top pick in airlines following recent updates showing industry traffic and unit revenue growth slowed in Q2. Catalysts include expected approval of its merger with American Airlines. The dispute over American Air's share of slots at Reagan National will be settled without delaying the merger or affecting the combined entity's profitability. Another pick is Brazilian low-cost carrier Gol Linhas (GOL), with consensus not appreciating the impact of capacity cuts being made by the airline and its main competitor Latam Airlines Group (LFL).

    IATA boosts its 2013 profit forecast for the airline industry to $12.7B from $10.6B previously (and up 67% from 2012) thanks to better traffic and lower-than-expected fuel prices. The industry load factor is expected to hit a record 80.3% this year, 6 points higher than the previous record set in 2006. At the same time the group reminds of wafer-thin profit margins for many passenger airlines and notes air cargo market growth has stagnated.
