A new report concludes that 46 years after it began flying, Southwest Airlines Co. (LUV) still has a significant impact every time it enters a new market: Fares decline and passenger traffic climbs. "The Southwest effect is alive and well," says the report, compiled by Alan Beckenstein, a professor at Darden Business School at University of Virginia, and Brian Campbell, founder of consulting firm Campbell-Hill Aviation Group.
SĂŁo Paulo-based airline Azul SA (AZUL) on Monday became the latest carrier to highlight the improvement in Latin America's economy, even though CEO David Neeleman declared, "Brazil still hasn't recovered." "While you haven't seen a recovery yet, you're seeing stability," Neeleman said on the carrier's second quarter earnings call. "We're seeing stable bookings." Azul shares closed Monday at $25.68, up 1%. Shares have gained 27% from its April IPO price.
As the air cargo industry booms, the impact of new entrant Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) Prime Air remains a bit of a mystery - obvious in some ways and hidden in others. Of course, a 40-aircraft cargo airline operated by the world's fourth most valuable public company will influence the overnight cargo market, even if FedEx Corporation (FDX) executives proclaimed in March that they are not worried.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
