Stocks Begin Second Quarter with Small Gains

Ben Hider/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The stock markets began the second quarter Monday with a small bump.

The Dow ticked up 10.5 points, while the Nasdaq and S&P jumped just 23 and 28 points, respectively.
 
Monday's decent session comes on the heels of a fantastic first quarter that ended Friday with U.S. stocks having their best start to a year in 14 years.
 
Meanwhile, a new survey of airlines says, believe it or not, passengers are the happiest they have been in more than 20 years.  A report by private researchers says airline performance improved across the board, when people measured things like lost bags, delayed flights, bad service and getting bumped from flights.  Low-fare airlines did the best -- AirTran came in first place, followed by Hawaiian Airlines and JetBlue.
