President Trump probably didn’t consult many airline executives before announcing his China tariff plan. Airlines could be losers if this spurs a trade war. As the Trump Administration prepares to impose strict tariffs on many goods from China, executives at some of the world’s largest airlines say they fear the president’s decision could spur a trade war and depress demand for travel between the U.S. and China. Many experts, investors and business people fear the tariffs may not have the effect Trump envisions, suggesting they could lead to a trade war, with companies on both sides suffering. Airlines could be one of the many industries that lose, as fewer customers many want to travel between the U.S. and China.
