"Song is a great great product its just financially not sound and probably wont survive long (with Ted), even though i really want it too. I've said it all along, if song was spun off by Delta with them having a 49% stake in it, the rest by some other form of financiers, had a Delta exec. as CEO, the airline would be fine...but DL
is not fiscally sound, and probably thought short term it would be easy....oh well."
I am not sure where you get your figures from, but TED loads are higher than ever forecasted. In flight food and bev sales are exceeding the expected return.
What do you speak of when you say "financially sound"? Was that something you read on a cereal box? I see no supporting data to suggest that TED cannot sustain itself or that it is not "financially sound". Loads are higher, as a result revenues are higher, despite increased fuel prices. I think you should go back and check some figures before you make ASSumptions like that.
Although TED is new, numbers may be misleading without a longer period of evaluation. This may be required (and would be required by responsible parties) but by no means does it diminish the fact that TED is exceeding management scientists expectations thus far.
