Two outstanding articles in today's USA Today make for good reading regarding financial losses at the Big-6 US airlines, and also regarding the growth of low-fare airlines in the US, especially Southwest and JetBlue.
Here are the links:

Growth of low-fare airlines: http://www.usatoday.com/money/biztravel/2002-07-29-mid_size_x.htm
(the print version of USA Today for Tuesday-Money section-has a graphic depicting airports with low-fare airlines, as well as a chart witht the growth of low-fare airlines at various airports since 1992)
