Still, there are some good opportunities left in the airline sector. Here are five top airline stocks that are well-positioned to outshine peers and the broader market in 2014.

(DAL), Republic Airways Holdings Inc. (RJET) and JetBlue Airways Corporation (JBLU). Since investment gurus Ken Heebner (Trades, Portfolio), George Soros
The airline industry is probably one of the toughest to maneuvre successfully. With over 180 bankrupt companies since 1978, and 82% of the domestic market currently concentrated amongst the top four carriers with strong pricing power, this is definitely one tough market space. However, the Texas-based low-cost airline Southwest Airlines Co (LUV) has managed to not only survive 40 years in the industry, but also consecutively deliver profits, thanks to its low fares, a 700 aircraft of all-Boeing fleet, and its utilization of second-tier airports like the Chicago Midway.
