    Airlines get a boost as David Tepper (earlier) argues "the equity is cheap to everything," and the industry has the tailwinds of a strong dollar and "flat" oil prices. DAL +3.5%, UAL +1.2%, LCC +2.8%, LUV +2.2%, SAVE +3%.

    American Airlines (AAMRQ.PK), Delta (DAL) and United Airlines (UAL) are among the carriers whose flights to and from London's Heathrow Airport have been cancelled because of heavy snow. Overall, 260 flights were due to be scrapped today after over 400 were axed on Friday and well over 100 yesterday. No doubt the snowstorm, like the Queen's jubilee celebrations last year, will be trotted out to explain why U.K. GDP could have been higher.

    Boeing (BA) is working with the FAA on interim safety measures so the agency can allow the Dreamliner to start flying again, with government and industry officials hoping this can take place early next week. Meanwhile, the FAA's oversight regime in which plane makers do much of the testing - the agency can't afford to take the lead in this area - before a plane is certified is under scrutiny following the 787's malfunctions and particularly its battery problems.

    Airfares in focus: United Continental (UAL) pushes through its second hike in fares this year with domestic pricing up by as much as $10 this week. The probing move drew in JetBlue (JBLU) already, but analysts think that unless Southwest Airlines (LUV) jumps on board, fare could slip back lower. (Previous: Barclays bullish on airliners)

    Flying high? Barclays is out with a positive note on the airline sector, saying stocks could rise 20% on a mix of higher fares and lower jet fuel prices. Investors should also keep an eye on the merger front. With all signs pointing to an eventual marriage between American Airlines and US Airways, future industry consolidation/partnerships could still be on tap. A particular focus will be on Washington DC to see if rules governing foreign ownership of U.S. carriers are relaxed.

    Though consumer prices remained flat in December, airline fares kept up their slow march higher to notch a 2.1% rise for the year. Analysts note the ARCA Airline Index (XAL) is up 10% YTD and could have the legs to run higher as fare hikes trickle down to the bottom lines of carriers.
