Airline industry is in 'great stress', says SpiceJet chief

His comments come against the backdrop of high crude oil prices hurting the airline industry as Aviation Turbine Fuel (ATF) alone accounts for over 40 percent of a carrier's operational costs.
On why airlines are not able to increase fares, the SpiceJet chairman and managing director said it has all happened at a time when the season is a little weak.
Currently, Singh said that there needs to be at least "10-15 percent increase in yields to cover existing costs".
