Theairline industry closelymonitors themidlatitude jet stream for short-term planning of flight paths and arrival times. In addition to passenger safety and on-timemetrics, this is due to the acute sensitivity of airline profits to fuel cost. US carriers spent US$47 billion on jet fuel in 2011, compared with a total industry operating revenue of US$192 billion. Beyond the timescale of synoptic weather, the El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO),ArcticOscillation (AO) andothermodes of variability… CONTINUE READING
