How is NW doing? If fuel prices drop, will they be in a position to make a profit again?

NW should be financially sound after they get concessions from pilots this summer. They have the second highest costs in the industry next to DL. Of course, lower gas prices will definatley help. They are the highest cost next to labor.

NW is definatley looking like it will be one of the first majors to achieve sustainable recovery.

What bothers me about the airline I patronize the most is that in January and February, NW did not post profit and lose statements but did announce their loads and load factors vs. last year same dates. Then at the end of March, the first quarter they announced a large loss for the first quarter. During the first 90 days of this year, NW was thumping to the unions it needed new contracts to survive and it needed lower pay scales with less benefits.
MY THOUGHT......NW made $$$ the first two months but didn't announce to the public because if they did, there would be NO WAY the unions would play ball on the new contracts....
That last sentence is only a guess, not fact. The first sentence is fact.

Isn't in the custom in this industry to release load information monthly, and financials quarterly? Of course, I have no idea whether NW is on a calendar year. Anyone know more about this?

There is NO WAY NW or any airline would "hide" profits to get the unions to the table. It's illegal and the SEC would be at your door.

NW, like other companies, is required to file only quarterly profit and loss statements. The exception is UA and other companies in bankruptcy -- they provide financial results monthly.

NW, like other carriers, posts monthly traffic information.
