Federal Airline Loan Guarantees

Thu Jun 27, 2002 9:06 am

With United, U.S. Airways, and America West having been the major airlines so far to apply for the Federal Loan Guarantees, and several second-tier carriers filing as well, what airlines do you think are the most financially set to not have to apply for them. The deadline for applying is coming up really soon, so have those that have already applied for them the only ones that will apply for them, or will we see a last minute rush of applications? The only airlines that I can see not applying for them are Southwest, Northwest, JetBlue, and posibly AirTran.

Hawaiian also commented that they will not be applying, also ATA may not apply for them. FedEx, UPS, AS, CO, AA will probably not apply. But anything can happen before friday.

In today's AJC, there was an article in the business section saying that Delta and AirTran are not going to apply for them.
