Prognosis '96 Transportation

Positives

-- Airline capacity should grow more slowly than traffic, meaning fuller planes and higher fares.

-- Railroads are boosting productivity with computerization and faster locomotives.

Negatives

-- Airlines will be hard-pressed to win cost reductions from labor when profits are soaring.

-- The trucking industry is suffering from excess capacity.

-- Railroads have yet to sign contracts with about a dozen unions.
