On June 6, 2013, Delta Air Lines, Inc. (Delta) announced that it has
implemented a new anti-human trafficking program in coordination with the U.S.
Customs and Border Protection's Blue Lightning Initiative. Richard Anderson,
Delta's CEO, commented, "Guided by our values, Delta is proud to be among the
first airlines to adopt this new training program to help raise awareness and
combat the problem of human trafficking. Delta strongly condemns all forms of
human rights abuses, including human trafficking. Our core values along with
the responsibility that comes with our global reach have led us to be at the
forefront among airlines in this fight against human trafficking." The Blue
Lightning Initiative is a computer-based training program that provides
airlines with added tools to help identify and report suspected instances of
human trafficking. The program, combined with Delta's current safety and
security training initiatives, will help prevent air transportation from being
used as a vehicle to commit human trafficking and other forms of human rights
abuses. All customer-facing Delta employees will complete the training program
by the end of 2013. The Full Research Report on Delta Air Lines, Inc. -

On June 4, 2013, United Continental Holdings, Inc. (United Airlines) executed
a definite purchase agreement with AltAir Fuels for cost-competitive,
sustainable, advanced biofuels at commercial scale, representing a historic
milestone in the history of aviation. AltAir Fuels will retrofit part of an
existing petroleum refinery to become a 30 million gallon, advanced biofuel
refinery near Los Angeles, CA., where it will produce low-carbon, renewable
jet fuel and other renewable products. United Airlines will be purchasing the
advanced biofuel at a price competitive with petroleum-based jet fuel. AltAir
expects to begin delivering five million gallon of renewable jet fuel per year
to United starting in 2014. The advanced biofuel requires no modification to
factory-standard engines or aircraft, with which it is fully compatible. This
fuel provides the same performance as conventional, petroleum-based jet fuel.
AltAir Fuels' renewable jet fuel is expected to achieve at least a 50%
reduction in greenhouse gas emissions on a lifecycle basis. The Full Research
