But I still have my doubts though. I figured that Southwest could still push USAirways over the edge and that was before I heard about the chaos Delta plans to unleash on the rest of industry.
My gut tells me that is not WN
's intention. If US were to enter Ch. 7, the insuing chaos would close as many doors as it would open. For now, WN
should be establishing as firm a foothold as possible in US cities while making sure US doesn't fall apart. A sick analogy would be a parasite on a host... killing the host does nothing productive.
That is the first postitive thing I have heard yet, of course now that the union contracts are thrown-out and the scare tactics are not needed; he is all the sudden trying to sound optimistic to lure in the investors.
It's easily possible that US could survive, they just need some major steps to rationalize their opperations. Labor costs are not everything; higher aircraft utilization, simplified fleet structure, and simplified fare structure could do them very well.
has solved their major problem (running out of cash) and they have made some miniscule opperational profits in Q3
-Q4. They need to establish a viable long-term business model quickly, or else the WN
parasite will just keep sucking and sucking and sucking... I like both WN
and US, I just think US has lots of improvement to do because they are basically handing their business over to WN
