Management Report for T&H Airlines Executive Summary T&H is a domestic airline that until now has been self-insured. Current Company CFO, Bill Albertson, is studying the best option in terms of insurance for the company, to minimize risk at the lowest possible cost. To analyze this issue a simulation model for T&H Airlines was developed using the company data and the industry information. Two quotes were presented and considered by the company CFO. Quote number one has a premium of 150% of actual losses and a minimum and maximum of $5 and $12 per 1,000 insured, while policy two has a premium of 100% of actual losses and a minimum and maximum of $6 and $9 per 1,000 insured.
1: Tariffs encourage Americans to buy U.S.-made products. (Points: 13) I find this position to be valid. Tariffs are basically taxes on imports, thus making imported goods more expensive to buy (Nickels, McHugh & McHugh, 2008, p. 75). Protective tariffs are designed to raise the retail price of imported products so that domestic goods are more competitively priced (Nickels, McHugh & McHugh, 2008, p. 76). Therefore, if when a consumer enters a store and sees similarly priced products, one imported and one made domestically, they can choose a US made product without feeling as if they are overpaying for the same product.
Other arguments for the expansion include jobs and the increase in economy, for example the 3rd runway will boost the economy to a predicted 22 billion. The Construction alone will create 60,000 jobs in the area and once complete there will be 800 jobs available on site. Many local people are concerned that the increased air traffic will cause too much pollution but these concerns are often over played. The development will help to compete against other European airports, which
• It was recommended to Will, by his friend Elsa that he increases the price of his product to allow for additional funds for advertising. • It is recommended that Will increase the price of the lapsed copyright books to $13 and increase the copyright books to $18. • Will could look into the option of renting these digitized books, which could increase profit because he would incur only the initial cost for producing the product and every time is rented out after that initial time, would be mainly
LONG-FORM CASE ANALYSIS FORMAT ____________________________________________________________ British Airways: “Go for It, America!” Promotion (A) Case Name Central Issue How can British Airlines stimulate the US travel market and encourage travel to Europe during a time when terrorism has struck fear into many Americans? Recommended Course of Action Utilize sweepstakes and prizes to raise awareness and increase consumption of European travel by American nonusers vacationing from April through October. Basis for Recommendation Financially, the “Go for It, America” promotion makes sense considering the projected ROI is 10-15 times the campaign investment and will help them close the gap on expected losses (Teopaco & Greyser, 1991). Promotions used in this campaign will stimulate positive word-of-mouth and good will feelings towards BA long after summer 1986. Reasonable Alternatives Increase Commissions to the Trade Cut prices to consumers Increase advertising Cut their losses Implement their “Big Idea” promotion of “Go for It, America!” Significant Factors 1.
The length of railway tracks in Russia increased form 31219 miles in 1891 to 58392 miles by 1904. In the same time period, Russia’s coal production increased from 6.01 million tonnes to 18.67 million tonnes. This shows how the government’s investment in expanding and modernizing the country’s railways resulted in significant economic gains. This was a result of an increased ability to transport raw materials to areas with the greatest population, such as the area surrounding St Petersburg. The railways, particularly the Trans-Siberian railway, also gave Eastern Russia a link to Europe and Western Russia a link to the Pacific Ocean, which made it easier to export Russian goods.

However, the opposite was observed based on data from other colleges, which provided the basis for Hansen’s analysis, that a 60% increase in tuition would lead to a similar increase in enrollment and result in a 40% increase in tuition based revenue. Upon initial assessment, it appears Hansen’s analysis violates the law of demand, yet her evaluation is supportable. By utilizing price elasticity of demand, graphical and mathematical
This is very beneficial for Delta; the airline industry is always being pressure to show more profits and results. Delta achieved this by extending the life of its equipment and changing its residual values. It resulted in a savings of $127 million in depreciation expense for year-end December 2007. A downside to decreasing depreciation is taxes. With decreased depreciation and increased net income, Delta’s income taxes increase.
Increase monthly net profits goal was achieve by strategically increase the rental price in cities with high demand and growing market share. Orlando was the city with highest growing demand by volume. Demand for rental cars grew from 1.51M to 2.55M during that fiscal year. I took advantage of this high demand to gradually increase the price for rentals from $41 to $69 during weekdays and from $34 to $60 during the weekends. By the end of the fiscal year, net profits in Orlando grew from 9.2M (initial fiscal year) to 21.1M in September.
