Airline Discussion Board
An SI Board Since January 1997
Posts SubjectMarks Bans Symbol
1807 32 0 JETS
Emcee:  Sam Type:  Moderated
This board used to be the American Airline board. However, it is more reasonable IMO to have a board that discusses more generally the broader airline business. This includes the "big four" airlines in the US (AAL, DAL, UAL, and LUV) as well as international carriers and suppliers such as Boeing and Airbus and GE and any other businesses that supply airlines (leasing companies, food suppliers, etc). The business is undergoing huge changes thanks to the coronavirus pandemic; talking about those changes is also very relevant to the board. That doesn't mean that the board should veer into politics--NO POLITICS. Any post deemed to be political will be deleted and any poster who veers into politics more than once will be banned.

An airline is a company that provides air transport services for
traveling passengers and freight. Airlines utilize aircraft to supply
these services and may form partnerships or alliances with other
airlines for codeshare agreements, in which they both offer and
operate the same flight. Generally, airline companies are recognized
with an air operating certificate or license issued by a governmental
aviation body. Airlines may be scheduled or charter operators.

U.S. Global Jets ETF (JETS)
[added by suggestion of Moonray]

JETS is the only ETF that exclusively holds airline industry stocks, and is heavily invested in U.S.-based airline industry stocks, including DAL and UAL. JETS tracks the performance of the Global Jets Index, which features a mix of U.S.-based and international airline stocks, with a few airline manufacturers, air cargo suppliers and other air-related stocks for diversification.

The fund was created in 2015, and that’s sufficient history to attract assets and review historic performance (three years’ minimum is ideal). Expenses are 0.60, or $60 in one year, for every $10,000 invested.

The current makeup of JETS:

Southwest Airlines Co. 12.05%
American Airlines Group, Inc. 10.80%
Delta Air Lines, Inc. 9.45%
United Airlines Holdings, Inc. 9.14%
Air Transport Services Group, Inc. 5.83%
SkyWest, Inc 4.63%
Allegiant Travel Company 4.30%
Alaska Air Group, Inc. 4.26%
