Capacity discipline in the U.S. domestic market has helped improve airline profitability at least in the short-run. However, if applied too broadly, it can cause opportunities to be lost, and therefore reduce long-term profitability. Many international markets are already growing rapidly; this is forecast to continue. US carriers especially must address these markets aggressively to avoid missing opportunities for long-term profits.
