PRNewswire has posted stories on Delta's and Continental's financial performance for the 4th quarter and full 2002 year in the last two days. Fragments of the articles follow, but to highlight:

Delta: - 363million USD loss for the quarter/ - 1.3billion USD loss for the year
Continental - 109million USD loss for the quarter/ - 451 million USD loss for the year.

Analysts expect that 2003 won't be much better for US airlines. What steps will be taken next to stop the bleeding? What do the very real possibilities of a war in Iraq and United's Chapter 7 mean for these airlines?

HOUSTON, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Continental Airlines
(NYSE: CAL) today reported a fourth quarter net loss of $109 million

over the fourth quarter 2001 loss of $149 million.

loss per share), which includes a charge for fleet disposition/impairment and
other special items totaling $161 million ($254 million before taxes).
Excluding the special items, the net loss would have been $290 million

"In spite of these extraordinarily difficult times, we again demonstrate
that not all airlines are alike," said Gordon Bethune, chairman and chief
executive officer of Continental Airlines. "Thanks to a dedicated and focused
team of professional employees, we continue to outperform our competitors in
almost every measure."
