I was speaking with a UA pilot yesterday about weird rumors floating around our system and he had two I hadn't heard before:
1) Exit from Chapter 11 will happen in a matter of weeks rather then months. He said to expect a suprise "early" exit instead of a mid to late summer exit.
2) Part of our exit financing will include a portion from Sony.
I think the first one might happen, but the second sounds like someone got their "wires crossed" about our partnership with Sony Music and thier new online music site. Perhaps a partnership with Sony means robot Flight Attendants and better PTV systems!
The debate continues... Starwood or Hyatt... which is better

The exit won't happen, I believe, until Uncle Sam indicates what is the status of that $1.6 billion UA wants in loan guarantees. I still think UA doesn't have a clue what to do if they dont' get those guarantees.
Interesting speculation, though. I wouldn't bet the farm on it, quite yet.
