A sharp increase in revenue passenger miles drove both profits and fuel consumption on domestic operations up between 2014 and 2016 for U.S. airlines. Alaska Airlines again ranked first in overall fuel-efficiency, while the gap between it and the least fuel-efficient carrier, Virgin America in 2016, widened slightly to 26%.

Looks into the potential and challenges of commercial-scale alternative jet fuel (AJF) production and use based on United Airlines and AltAir’s experience including its challenges, successes, and lessons learned.
