I put together a side by side comparison of the Q2 financial results for the 6 largest US carriers. There are a lot of interesting items that immediately stand out when looking at this comparison. A few of thes items include:

1.) AA's labor costs (no surpise, but this puts it into perspective):
DL's labor cost in Q2 was roughly equal to AA's, but DL generated 44% more revenue. Looking at it another way, UA and AA has similar revenues, but UA's labor cost was lower by $700 million.

2.) Southwest labor costs:
Southwest no longer has the same labor cost advantage that it once used to. In fact, their labor cost now exceeds US and CO.

3.) US Airways Q2 results:
As much bad publicity as US Airways receives, it had a very good quarter. In fact, they did a very good job managing their fuel expenses. US had the same revenues as WN but 1/3 less fuel expenses.

4.) Cash Flows:
Operating cash flow for all airlines was positive for the first 6 months. UA's net financing cash flows were positive due to the issuance of $2 billion in debt. DL's net financing cash flows were negative due to $1.6 billion in repayment of long term debt.
