If you are running an airline, surely you will concerned about the five forces which are continuously changing and affecting your organisation. Let is review these forces from a lay-man perspective and not from the academic views:

1. Competitive rivalry – This is the rivalry with other airlines in your existing markets or future markets.

Take for example of Malaysia Airlines, it will have to identify and segment its markets first. Probably it will come out with a cross matrix segments of:

a. geographical markets

b. demography

c. Travel purposes.

Let view one of the segment, geographical .. for Malaysia. Then we can see straight away the prominent competitor which is Air Asia. The competitor will be one of the considerations for us to develop or strategy.

2. The threat of substitution.

Let have a look at the market segment based on travel purposes. So one of the purpose of travelling is for business dealing, like meeting or discussion. With the advance in internet, some of the discussion can be done online, either through video conferencing or the simple chatting. Now we can see the real meaning of the threat to substitution.

When the potential customers decided to use video conferencing rather than taking a flight, one ticket sale is lost.

3. Threat on new entrance – Like the case of the two airlines in Malaysia, MAS and Air Asia, there is always possibility that another airline will be formed to service the existing market. The likeliness of another airlines being formed, will depend so much on the barrier to entry and the lucrativeness of the business.

4. Buyers Power. Some company have small number of customers which purchase a high volume of the products. Taking the example of Malaysian Helicopter Services (MHS) who has customer like SHELL and PETRONAS, will acknowledge the power these two buyers have.…...

Gogo Squeez

...GoGo squeeZ Applesauce On The Go By: Callan Buck Kristin Clark Melissa Etter Aimee Lindamood Alex Reynolds “It was love at first squeeZ” Secondary Research: INDUSTRY When exploring current trends in the food industry, some observations become clear: the population wants food that is natural and free of artificial ingredients, not only for their children but also themselves, and most importantly they want it while they are on the go. Researchers at the SIAL conference in 2009 concluded that manufacturers are constantly finding innovative ways to include natural, healthy ingredients in their products, with “all-natural” foods becoming a major consumer demand. But is this costly, natural approach impacting consumer-purchasing habits? NERAC Research Firm states that even with economic struggles, “consumers still want a convenient, quick, fresh, healthy, tasty and sophisticated food experience” (Nerac). Interestingly enough, consumers will spend the buck for a healthier eating experience, allowing manufacturers to gain more capital in exchange for fewer ingredients used. In addition, it is apparent that manufacturers are taking advantage of the consumer habit of eating away from home. According to retail-merchandiser.com, consumers are more interested in snacking to get their daily nutrition, and eating fewer full meals. To achieve this on-the-go lifestyle, parents are turning to convenient food pouches. Neil Grimmer, a pioneer of food pouches for toddlers,......

Godot Ve Beklemek

...boşuna bir anlam bulmaya çalışma!" Perde açılsın Gün ışığı, araf kadar sade bir kır yolu, kuru bir ağaç, Didi (Vladimir) ve Gogo (Estragon). Oyun “Yapacak bir şey yok” repliğiyle başlar. Diğeri karşılık verir: “Al benden de o kadar”(1). Bu sözleri kimin söylediğinin önemi yoktur. Lakin biri diğerinin tamamlayıcısıdır. Gogo bedensel ve güdüsel, Didi düşünsel ve duygusal karakterlerdir. Gogo sürekli ayağına vuran çizmelerinden yakınıp kurtulmaya çalışır. Sendeler durur, bazen düşer. Karnı da açtır, gözü de; hep uykusuzdur; her gece aynı yerde serserilerden dayak yer. Didi ise kafasına uymayan şapkasından yakınıp durur; sürekli çıkarıp içini yoklar. Sahnede bir oraya bir buraya gider gelir, zaman ve mekân içinde sıkışmışlığı iliklerine kadar hisseder. Dünü ve yarını sorgular. Geçmişi bölük pörçük de olsa hatırlar, anlamlandıramamaktan rahatsızlık duyar. Ama Gogo geçmişi hatırlamakta zorluk çeker, durumu çok da önemsemez. Velhasıl her ikisi için de atalet eylemsizlik için bahanedir. Eylemsizlik de ataleti getirir. Oyundaki birçok kısırdöngüden sadece biridir bu. İkili dibinde buluştukları, tek bir yaprağı olmayan ağaca kendilerini asarak intihar etmek, sebebini bilmeseler de bedensel ve ruhsal olarak dışa vurdukları var olma sancısına son vermek isterler. Gerçi Didi’nin hâlâ umudu vardır: Godot’yu beklemek ister, Gogo’ya mütemadiyen hatırlatır bunu. Gogo ve Didi bu farklılıkları nedeniyle çatışır durur ama aynılıkları da yok değildir. İkisi de düşünceden düşünceye atlar,......

...Which, and the gift of words. “We determine if we use a word correctly by the way it is stated to us, or how it is used in a sentence.” Those are the very words I was saying to myself, when I notice I was lost in the Doldrums and could not find my way out. Do I go left, right, up, or down? My god, how did I even get here? I want to go ……And before I could even finish my sentence the not so wicked Which stood before me. The first question I asked was “Where am I?” And she clearly stated “Well, you already know where you are, the question you should be asking is how you got here. I mean that would be the more logical question to ask if you indeed really want to get out of here.” Yeah, yeah, yeah, I mumbled…So what am I doing here in these unpleasant doldrums. She replied saying “This is where you end up when you don’t pay attention and don’t think. I cried out “Don’t Pay Detention…. Lady I pay to get out of Detention every time I get one.” And she quickly responded “My point exactly.” You see I said when you don’t pay ATTENTION!!!! Not pay DETENTION, You ignorant child!!!!! I felt so stupid, I couldn’t even think of what to say next. The Which explained to me what is would take for me to get out of these doldrums, by instilling in me the importance of paying attention and the wisdom and knowledge of the gift of words.

Japan and It's Economic Evaluation

...Student Economic Review, Vol. 17, 2003, pp. 153-165 JAPAN IN THE DOLDRUMS: A STUDY OF DEFLATION AND RECESSION DANIEL J.C. BAKER Senior Freshman Japan's dream deflates Interest rates and Keiretsu Dan Baker blames you Introduction This essay examines the performance of the Japanese economy over the period 1985 to 2002 with reference to key economic variables, such as GDP growth, price stability performance, employment, and the public debt to GDP ratio, etc. We focus on the path the economy has taken since the bursting of the “bubble economy” early in 1990, and in particular on the phenomenon of deflation, which appeared as a persistent problem towards the end of the 1990s. This paper will investigate the underlying causes of recession and deflation in Japan, and examine the main problems associated with the latter. Finally, a number of policy solutions will be suggested to combat the deflationary pressures in Japan, and more generally, to help stimulate economic growth. What’s wrong with Japan? Before the bubble burst - Japan as Number One During the 1980s it was a popularly held belief that Japan was rapidly and inexorably catching up on America as the world’s number one economy. From a state of near-complete devastation at the end of World War II, Japan had transformed itself into a global economic powerhouse second only to America in terms of productive output, and unequalled in terms of growth1. Not surprisingly, Japan was considered by many to be the model......

The Witch by Edilberto Tiempo

...around her to three fingers width above her thin chest. The bank of her left was a foot-wide ledge of unbroken boulder on which she had set a wooden basin half full of wet but still unwashed clothes. In front of her was a submerged stone pile topped by a platter size rock; on it were a heap of shredded coconut meat, a small discolored tin basin, a few lemon rinds, and bits of pounded gogo bark. The woman was soaking her sparse gray hair with the gogo suds. She must have seen me coming because she did not look surprised. Seeing the three small shrimps hanging at my side she said, “You have a poor catch.” She looked kind. She was probably as old as my grandmother; smaller, for this old woman was two or three inches below five feet. Her eyes looked surprisingly young, but her mouth, just a thin line above the little chin, seemed to have tasted many bitter years. “Why don’t you bait them out of their hiding? Take some of this.” She gave me a handful of shredded coconut meat whose milk she had squeezed out and with the gogo suds used on her hair. She exuded a sweet wood fragrance of gogo bark and the rind of lemons. “Beyond the first bend,” she said pointing, “the water is still. Scatter the shreds there. That’s where I get my shrimps. You will see some traps. If you find shrimps in them they are yours.” I mumbled my thanks and waded to the bend she had indicated. That part of the creek was like a small lake. One bank was lined by huge boulders showing long, deep......

The Consumer Experience of Mental Health Nursing

A journal article by Geanellos (2005), “Adversity as opportunity: Living with schizophrenia and developing a resilient self” is a hermeneutical interpretation of 19 people diagnosed with this disorder. According to Geanellos, adaptation, adversity and resilience provide opportunities to adequately adapt to the effects of schizophrenia. Champ (1998), on the other hand provides a detailed account of struggle with schizophrenia. According to Champ, consumerism, personhood, recovery and self identity forms the basic paths to positive living with schizophrenia. This is a quality document that opens the eye on some of the challenging concepts that entails the path to recovery from schizophrenia. Another personal experience on the same topic is by Jeff (1997), “the experience of schizophrenia”.

...and rise. When the air is unstable the pressure drops. The ITCZ is an area of low pressure due to all the heating and instability in the air. The low pressure causes air to rise and as it rises it cools and condenses into clouds and if it condenses rapidly enough it forms precipitation. The ITCZ is responsible for the wet season in the tropics The ITCZ is always in an area where the sun is directly overhead or almost directly overhead, which would be in the summertime in the tropics. In areas of the tropics where the sun is not directly overhead are areas of high pressure which are not conducive to cloud production or precipitation these areas are both to the north and south of the ITCZ are called the doldrums and move seasonally parallel alongside the ITCZ. The Doldrums are responsible for the dry season in the tropics. Many tropical rain forests lie along the equator and these are in the range of the ITCZ for all or most of the year, so it is rainy for most of the year there. The tropical wet and dry forests are on either side of the rain forests along the equator and savannahs in the Northern hemisphere are to the north of the wet and dry forests, and in the southern hemisphere to the south of the wet and dry forests. This is because the wet and dry forests spend more time in the ITCZ than savannahs. The global atmospheric circulation model shows how air near the equator tends to rise, due to the temperatures being higher than the surrounding tropics. This......

We have assembled an in-flight Wi-Fi administration charges table for the major U.S. airlines. Most of the airlines utilize the Gogo as a part of flight Wi-Fi administration which permits any Wi-Fi empower gadgets (from smart phone to cell phone) to join with the Internet in-flight. Most United States transporters have, as of late, declared upgrades and enhancements to their residential in-flight tech that, now and again, even give free entertainment to the poor souls back in mentor. These new administrations let you utilize your own particular mobile gadgets, in the same way as tablets, laptops and telephones, to either stream free substance like TV, music or amusements, or to lease motion pictures and TV without having to pay for a Wi-Fi arrangement.

Employees get huge increase in business efficiency involving research, invoicing, email and project development. All of these tasks can be handled without the worker returning to a desktop being stuck in an office (Koose, n.d.).

Economic Analysis of Gogo’s in-Flight Wi-Fi

...Case Study: Economic Analysis of Gogo’s In-flight Wi-Fi November 2, 2015 Introduction Gogo pioneered and now dominates the in-flight Wi-Fi business, which allows passengers to access the Internet during their flights. In recent years, consumers have grown from anticipation to dislike towards Gogo’s services due to its steady increase in fees and rapid decrease in speed. Through a dynamic pricing strategy they hope to relieve congestion which indeed have effect, but will not last in the fierce competition of an oligopoly market structure. Unlike its monopolistic position before, Gogo now faces at least three companies—ViaSat, Global Eagle Entertainment, and Panasonic— swiftly eroding its market share with cheaper and faster in-flight Wi-Fi services using satellites instead of antennas. Gogo’s own next-generation technology 2Ku, to come online in 2016, uses satellites that hopefully would achieve better prices with higher speed. To analyze the market for in-flight Wi-Fi and the pricing strategies of Gogo, our paper will discuss five core areas:      The price elasticity of demand for Gogo’s service, and how it varies with price levels The market structure Gogo is operating in Its dynamic pricing How the demand for in-flight Wi-Fi has changed over time, technological changes over the past 15-20 years that has affected demand Technological factors that affect supply, how congestion affects pricing and our recommendation Price Elasticity of......

...he activates his brother's robotics project Baymax (Scott Adsit), a personal healthcare companion who eventually becomes Hiro's surrogate brother. It's then the two unlikely friends discover a sinister plot that was hatched by a masked villain named Yokai (who later turned out to be Callahan himself) to steal Hiro's microbots in order to use them for a vengeful act against a former colleague (Alan Tudyk). At this point, Hiro and Baymax team up with Tadashi's four friends Fred (TJ Miller), a hippy-looking fan-boy son of a wealthy entrepreneur, Wasabi (Damon Wayan Jr), a physics student who just happens to be paranoid about everything around him, Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez), the sweet, optimistic fashion loving chemist queen, and Gogo (Jamie Cheung), the engineering student who just happens to be a woman of a few words who eventually becomes a mother-figure to Hiro. Together, they seek justice for their fallen friend and brother by ridding the city of the evil that has come upon it. What a lot of the critics on Rotten Tomatoes have been saying about this film that I completely agree with is that this story is so centered on grief, a topic that is rarely done on film, especially in western animated films where the subject seems to be to harsh for younger audiences. In one scene of the movie for example, the grief-stricken Hiro tried to turn Baymax into a murderous robotic killer after learning that Callahan had killed Tadashi in the fire. But the problem......

Other information technology innovations used by Song were a voice-recognizable ticket purchasing system and real-time flight information displays on plasma television screens at their gates (Gareiss, 2003). Inflight internet service is yet another innovation airlines are offering to gain customer loyalty from business travelers. Andrew Froehlich explains the technology Aircell’s Gogo Inflight Wi-Fi product: Aircell, I was told by a representative, had erected a national network of cellular towers throughout the continental United States to transmit broadband Internet connectivity to Gogo‐equipped aircraft. Three small antennas installed on the outside of the aircraft (two ATG antennas under the aircraft and one GPS antenna on top of the aircraft) receive the signal and convey it to the Gogo system in the aircraft. Gogo then transmits a Wi‐Fi signal inside the cabin for passenger use. (Froehlich, 2009) Hitachi Data Systems’ Director of Sales/Southeast uses this service to stay in touch with his administrative assistant and sales team during his weekly flights to customer meetings. Southwest Airlines continued as an industry leader in operational effectiveness through information technology when they installed GE Aviation’s SDS-6000 large area display suite in their Boeing 737 airplanes. “The integrated large area display......
