Well at least one analyst feels like the airlines are doing the right thing, he is now projecting anywhere from a 40%-70% smaller loss this year at the airlines across the board, and that the airline idustry should be profitable in 2010.

What happened to $200 oil? Only a couple months ago, everyone was convinced there was $200 oil.
Oil's had a $5 swing today, from up $2 to down $3. That pushed the airlines up 10% (and I'm sure this Lehman report helped). After being down 25% or more recently, we'll see if this is a real or temporary bump. But it would have been a good investment if you got in there yesterday.
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

So what, no more gloom and doom?
I am curious, though, about the capacity of the market. Is the trend still moving towards cutting back operations? A lot of people were saying that for the market to be healthy again, at least one major would have to go as well as possibly one or two regional/medium-sized carriers...is this still the case? What is the current state of the airlines? Are they recovering from the summer's oil prices? Are airlines like US, AA, F9, YX, & UA still "on life support"?
