  • A&D To See Mixed Credit Rating Environment Next Year
    • Abstract: Credit analysts at Standard & Poor’s Ratings Services forecast that credit quality for U.S. airlines will continue to improve in 2015 due to cheaper energy costs, led by lower oil prices. But smaller defense contractors could represent one pocket of declining credit quality next year as other financial conditions increasingly weigh on companies, starting with Wall Street’s pressure to reward shareholders at the expense of growing corporate debt. read more

  • South Korean Finance Ministry OKs KF-X
    • Abstract: The South Korean finance ministry has approved 8.8 trillion won ($8.1 billion) for full-scale development of the KF-X indigenous fighter, leaving parliamentary authorization, perhaps in 12 months, as the biggest remaining hurdle before program launch. The ministry must envision the launch of the program no earlier than 2016, since the parliament’s 2015 funding, 55.2 billion won, is only enough for preliminary work. The defense ministry asked for 100 billion won for next year. Earlier, program managers had hoped to see it launched in 2015. read more

  • DOT Awards Southwest DCA Slot Pair For Kansas City Route
    • Abstract: The U.S. Transportation Department (DOT) has awarded Southwest Airlines a slot pair at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) for flights to Kansas City, putting an end to a contentious battle for the coveted slots that has been waged in the DOT dockets for much of the year. In its ruling, DOT said Southwest’s service would create competition in what has been an American Airlines monopoly market and would be more in the public interest than JetBlue Airways’ proposal to fly between DCA and Jacksonville, Florida.  read more
