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.
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.

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?
