Hmmm.. moving their operation elsewhere with new financing.. returning all the CRJ... picking up $200 Mil financing, 8x 320, 10x E90, and 25x E70 through GE..

Announcing 2 new focus cities?

Dropping 3 stations?

International flights to NAS, CUN, and MBJ?

Beats the heck out of me..

The Virgin America theory makes sense to me. Virgin America has been silent about its plans -- can't blame them with the condition of the industry. Still, this would be one way to kickstart plans -- while getting rid of a competitor.

Branston? I think it's Branson. In any case, if a UK national uses his money to prop up a low fares airline in the US, isn't that a subsidy?

It could be a huge "loan" type offer like the one that WN made to ATA which made them a controlling partner. Virgin American could give a lot of money to Independence Air and rename and reform the airline. The company could somewhat stay intact with the owners of the current Independence Air having 51% share. If I had invested in Independence Air, then I would certainly approve of this deal since it is one of the few ways to possibly bail out and save the doomed carrier. The most valuable asset that Independece Air has is its operating certificate and that might be (partially) up for sale.

Given that the thread starter is an Independence employee and doesn't appear to be negative, I think the "big announcement" will be along the lines that they found an investor/buyer and not a Chapter 7 nor Chapter 11 announcement. It seems to me that they wouldn't "leak" that they were liquidating/Chapter 7 in a "few days" because too many employees and equipment would be stranded and not inclined to come to work. Theft and pilfering could become an issue should employees have advanced notice of a shutdown.

Of course, how much does a single CSR really know about big decisions in the company?!

We'll wait and see.

Can you say 7, I knew you could. It would be about time that would happen. They barely had a plan to operate as a LCC, let alone a plan to manage a Ch. 11 BK filing. I see some pretty liquid assets in the very near future. The A gates would be more than likely turned over to MWAA and then redistrubited to other airlines.

Just my speculation, but the new Mexico-US agreement means that IAD-CUN will likely be the international route. I imagine that would be a lot more successful than IAD-NAS or IAD-FPO.. and either of those two could have been announced months ago.

As for other additions/subtractions, one has to think SEA would be on the chopping block with the transcon reductions. Maybe SFO and LAS too. As for additions, I'd guess DFW, IAH, STL, and/or SRQ.
