Also this company was particularly hard hit by weather. 10 of the 28 days saw significant weather impact on the system, equating to lost revenue and increased expenses in overtime and deicing. The Northeast was shut down for all intent and purpose over the President's weekend. I had family stuck in Maine for four days, and to get back to CLT had to fly to CAE and I picked them up. Not very bad all things considered. Also, jet fuel was about $1.20 a gallon in February (I believe they had some hedging, but probably very little), and it is now at about 80 cents per gallon. That is a 33% decline for those of you in Rio Linda, CA. Costs should also decrease as some restructuring costs are now gone, such as lawyers fees, and the last of the employee severance should be over shortly. Barring unforseen events (prolonged war in Iraq or another terror attack), things should be getting better soon.
