US deserves more time...but UA on the other hand has had enough time..Im sure they will get another extenion here shortly instead of coming up with a plan.
|Quoting FriendlySkies (Reply 3):|
Why does US deserve more time and UA doesn't? Let me remind you, US rushed through bankruptcy the first time, with a plan that obviously failed. UA is spending as long as possible to get every last penny out of the bankruptcy. UA is also a hell of a lot bigger than US, and there's a lot more to reorganize. I'm sure if NW was in bankruptcy for 2 years and wanted another extension, you'd be telling everyone how much they needed and deserved it...

High fuel costs blah blah blah. First it was the LCC labor cost advantage, then they cut it by ONE BILLION a year. Ater that, same clutter of 'bad future for US' news articles...Now, they blame fuel.

I think the best solution for both airlines would be to transform into a new style LCC. One division of the company being international where the yeilds are decent and they make money, the other being a domestic low fare operation...similar to what America West did domestically.
