Free trade is losing its political punch in some of the most export-heavy congressional districts of the U.S. It's an ominous trend for exporters that are looking for a boost from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. A WSJ analysis by Bob Davis, Siobhan Hughes and Dante Chinni shows that only three of the 10 members of Congress from the districts showing the biggest exports gains since 2010 have publicly backed fast-track trade legislation. Three lawmakers from those districts, all Democrats, have announced they're opposed. The stakes for exporters should the TPP fail to pass are large: collectively, the countries involved in trade talks would make up America's third-largest goods export market. The world's airlines are projected to generate a collective .3 billion in profits this year, an outlook that's 17% better than forecast just six months ago. Shipping customerscan hope that the improved profitability translates into new cargo capacity. The profits projected this year by the International Air Transport Association are being built in part by keeping tight control on capacity in the passenger market, and there won't be much incentive to change a formula that's working so well. The WSJ's Robert Wall reports that passenger load factors are reaching past 80%, which crowds out cargo business. Carriers should deliver an industry-wide 7.5% return on invested capital in 2015 and that capital costs have declined. That would make freighters cheaper to buy--if airlines want to put those profits to work. Air freight business isn't seeing the same rosy outlook as passenger trade, and shippers in the industrial side of the airline business shouldn't expect capacity growth anytime soon. The improving profits in passenger operations aren't causing airlines to budge on their disciplined strategy
