Actually they have enough money to last a year without making any. So these Airbuses will fly. The current RJs will let them develop markets, for the time being, faster than JetBlue has (thats why B6 wants Emb-190s...to develop LCC markets with reduced capacity and/or greater frequency than the big boys). And their `non-existant' management saw off a hostile Mesa and UAL takeover. So you'd have to give them a better chance of survival than, say USAirways while their staff will be better motivated than, say, Mesa's!
