They've always had high traffic through bankruptcy. The problem is they spend too much money elsewhere...

These statistics aren't good at all, everything decreased except their load factor, which means absolutely nothing, especially from an airline with record losses. Their international load factors have decreased, which is another bad sign. These results are not good.

International capacity has increased significantly, year-on-year, so a drop in load factor is to be expected as the new routes establish. The total number of passengers carried, internationally, for the month, has increased.

This symptom is also true of just about every airline in the US. The simple fact of the matter is there is overcapacity. Airlines are pricing their product below cost to attract traffic. This is a perfect illustration of just because the airplanes are full, doesn't mean the airline is making money.

And it certainly isn't going to be good news if they've failed to decrease their breakeven load factor - currently the worst in the entire industry....
