Apparently from a convicted felon. Too bad, if it was true it could have really worked wonders for them.

I mean comeon, nowadays, who wants to buy an airline (other than through acquisitions), air carriers stocks have gone nowhere since the Jetblue IPO, and that was a long time ago.

It was nothing more than a nasty troll upon the airline industry.

I'm surprised there haven't been more comments on this. This was an attempt to scam a MAJOR company, and the number of comments is in the single digits.

This couldn't have gone anywhere because 1) he didn't have any funds (AMR would have found out long before any paper signing) and 2) he would have raised all sorts of red flags at the SEC if the deal started going through due to his past actions.

All that happened is that he violated the SE Act of 1934 and his actions manipulated the stock price of AMR. He's being prosecuted (...again...). The end.

It's been attributed to various people from Warren Buffet to Sir Richard Branson the quote, "If you want to be a millionaire, start out as a billionaire, then buy an airline."

I did hear Buffet say on CNBC several years ago that whenever he gets the itch to buy an airline, he call "Airline Owners Ananamous." He says, "Hi, my name is Warren, and I want to buy an airline." Then, someone talks him out of it, and he then goes back to rational buying of stocks and companies.
