Feb 12, 2013 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX) -- Below are the three companies in the Airlines industry with the highest price to earnings (P/E) ratios. P/E is an important valuation tool when comparing companies in the same industry. A higher P/E ratio means that investors are paying more for each unit of net income, so the stock is more expensive compared to one with a lower P/E ratio.Skywest ranks highest with a a P/E ratio of 34.08. Following is United Continental Holdings with a a P/E ratio of 20.08. Allegiant Travel ranks third highest with a a P/E ratio of 19.34.

Southwest Airlines follows with a a P/E ratio of 17.65, and JetBlue Airways rounds out the top five with a a P/E ratio of 14.70.
