Airline capacity changes in the USA

The news of late with respect to the US airline industry has generally been bleak. As the price of jet fuel keeps climbing, airlines are either announcing lay-offs and fleet groundings (for example, American, Continental, Delta and United), or in some cases their financial collapse (for example, Aloha and ATA Airlines).

USA Today has published an interactive graphic showing changes in airline seat capacity since October 2007 projecting forward to October 2008 on a states-by-state and airport-by-airport basis. The newspaper is keeping the graphic updated.

The sources for the data is OAG.
