Airline index ticker

  1. Can someone tell me if there is an airline index to buy/sell?
  2. There is no airline ETF that I know of. There is the AMEX $XAL airlines index but I don't think it's trade-able.
  3. That was what I had thought. What is the best way to short airline stocks as a whole? Is there an ETF?
  4. As I said there is no airline ETF. A decent proxy might be IYT (transports), it has the airlines in there I believe but only as a minor percentage.
