Hello fellow A.netters    -

On the Early Today Show this morning, it was said an estimate of $30 million loss over B6's "meltdown" was created. Poor B6   It's sad to see it take so much hype. How will it absorb the cost? Will that affect it's future financial figures? Do airlines have insurance policies against weather conditions?

Funny thing is, removing a flight attendant from the 320s is going to save us about $30million this year...well I guess there went that savings.

Dude, it's not a person, it's a company with a horrible "war room" that is now paying for it's lack of planning. But stock price rebounded today despite a Q1 earnings warning, so Wall Street isn't too worried about it.

The bloom is off the rose at CNBC however. This morning, they were mocking the "bill of rights." One anchor said: "aren't those things that most other airlines do already?" Even if they aren't, ouch...

Uh, okay...a company can take heat and can get hype as well, doesn't necessarily have to be a person.

Who said it can't. I just don't understand "sympathy" for a company. It's not a person. Now if you said "Poor Neeleman" then I'd get it.
