They'll be around for 06. The new fares will get them off the nosedive.

Christ... give it up already....
I think it's time for a shakeup... file for bankruptcy protection and get the books in order. The new fares won't do anything for the airline without major cost cuts. The recent cost cutting will only get them through 2006.
Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

would this mean anything for Song? I know that Delta has recently mentioned that they were planning on expanding Song, but I wonder how this large loss pans out for the future.

I have personally spent over $2300.00 flying Delta in 2004. New fares? I'm flying from Charleston,
SC to Las Vegas in March. $180 round trip on Independence Air. Guess who I'll be flying with.....

How much of that $5 billion was cash and how much was non-cash: asset write-downs, one-time accounting-charges, and write-offs?
Whatever the balance turns out to be, $5 billion of economic value was destroyed in some form. Hopefully not much was cash.
