You know it is kind of annoying how on your topic titles alot of people write something like you do - Did Anyone Make $$ Last Quarter, then proceed in the topic it self to request answers JUST partaining to the US. If you only wanted US carriers, you should have that in the Topic title. It is not just you, it is just getting on my nerve as of late, no harm intended just a reminder that this board is open to members everywhere not just in the USofA.
Your have a very good point.
The reason I segreated US carriers from the others in the world is I was interested in US carriers. If you or anyone else was interested in non US carriers, point it out. I understand some carriers(non US) did make money. Thats another reason for my separtation.
If two people agree on EVERYTHING, then one isn't necessary.
Allegiant revenue rises as profit falls in third quarter, beating Street estimates
By BENJAMIN SPILLMAN
Las Vegas-based Allegiant Travel Co. increased revenue 35.4 percent to $116.9 million in the third quarter, but earnings per share fell from 34 cents to 24 cents, a 29.4 percent decline.
Despite fuel costs chipping away at profits and a recession that's battering the hospitality and airline industries, Allegiant's airline business managed to post a third-quarter profit margin of 6.9 percent and beat analysts' earnings expectations by 5 cents per share.

Quoting Burnsie28 (Reply 5): Yep AA was the only one to squeeze out a net profit, with that said, everyone else would have made a profit had they not hedged fuel.
AS made $39.9 million in net profit for quarter 3. But under General Accepted Accounting Principles they had to report a loss because their hedge portfolios declined. But in reality they didn't actually lose that money. It's just the way they have to account for it.
