Particularly interesting is that Pilarski holds Southw Although dated, Pilarski's book provides a nice examination of many of the common ideas for why it's so hard to make money with airlines. In a nutshell, his point is that aviation is a customer service industry, but most airlines behave as though it isn't. He backs up many of his myth debunking with tables of actual industry numbers, which is refreshing, although some of his other ideas don't quite get the same rigorous treatment.

Seemingly since the beginning of aviation history there has been discussion and speculation on the remarkable inability of the industry to generate profits. This is even more so the case now, when a number of the world's airlines are bankrupt. The failure of aviation, or at least of airlines, to produce a reasonable rate of return on investments has been a fact pondered by many at great length but never satisfactorily understood.

Seemingly since the beginning of aviation history there has been discussion and speculation on the remarkable inability of the industry to generate profits. This is even more so the case now, when a number of the world's airlines are bankrupt. The failure of aviation, or at least of airlines, to produce a reasonable rate of return on investments has been a fact pondered by many at great length but never satisfactorily understood. Somehow the industry seems to violate the most basic principles of economics and business. The question as to how this is the case and how the industry managed to survive, let alone actually grow and prosper so far, is the subject of this book. It details the historical performance of the industry and critically explores the various theories proposed to explain its lack of profitability. Summarizing the analysis, the book also looks to the future, combining lessons from the past and recommendations regarding the better management of airlines. In conclusion it offers a prediction on the future of the global airline industry.
Reviews about Why Can't We Make Money in Aviation? (4):
Honeirsil
As a professional aviation educator I find this work reaches through aviators' zone of curiosity and into their well of essential knowledge regarding their industry. Aviation has always responded to the extreme in general economic cycles; general public recession equals aviation depression. This author clearly and logically shows certainly a major reason for such trends. Managers (today's and tomorrow's) should at least consider the power of trends and supply chains as they are presented by Adam Pilarski's excellently-named work. Should this book be considered lacking in any regard, it is its focus on the airline component of the overall aviaiton industry. Still, the author selects his target well, and such scholarly treatment of General Aviation (GA)and its razor-thin margins might dissuade both the researcher and reader from participating in an industry that, for all its drawbacks, still provides to its members lives far less ordinary than most comfortable, predictable professions that pamper their denizens with ample finances and dulled senses.

This book is funny (the flying pig on the cover is a giveaway). That's not the same as useless: it covers a lot of ground in 250 pages, focusing on the aviation product, supply chain, costs, peculiarities, and other publicly-proclaimed reasons why profit for airlines is in short surplus. It's not groundbreaking (its title isn't "How to make money in aviation"), it's also not for general aviation enthusiasts: this is a logical walk-through of possible answers to the question in the title with a set of answers at the end. As always, there isn't one single "golden bullet" but it gave me a clear perspective of my role in the industry and the value of knowing it.

I took this book from the University library (I was a Masters student in Air Transport Management), spent about an hour with it and quickly put it back on the shelf.

The title is misleading. It's of no use to anyone involved in academia and is full of out dated notions, strange ideas and general opinions of the author. Where was he going ranting on about the bible and the commandments?? The man lost the plot.

Certainly not worth the nearly 60 bucks Amazon is asking for it.

Read Holloway 'Straight & Level' or something from Doganis or Stephen Shaw for an informed, up-to-date overview of what really impacts profitability in this industry.

* If you're looking for tips on ways to make money, this is not the book for you.
* I just waste my money on this one.
* Only good for someone who is related to airline industry.
