Searpqx, while I agree with you to some extent, TSA is missing most strengths of any type. I doubt if TSA will exist as an independent entity for more than another year or so, though it might be bought out by one of AA's regional affiliates (as they have a fleet of ATRs and ERJs), but only if AA Eagle wants to inherit TSA's underlying problems, which I sincerely doubt.
Mesa made an amazing comeback, and TWA is in the process of making oen right now. Mesa and TWA, however, had three things going for them when they started their huge turnarounds. Competent management, good reputations (overall), and good service. TSA's management has made some incredbily bad decisions lately (namely sitting back and letting DL and TW begin to phase them out), their repuation is much less than desirable, and their service, excuse the expression, sucks. I once spoke to someone who wouldn't have known the difference between AA and BA if their life depended on it, but they knew (and hated) TSA well enough.
So, Searpqx, though the potential is there, if in a very minimal way, for TSA to make a comeback, it probably won't happen. In all likelihood, TSA's planes will wind up in an AA Eagle affiliate fleet, their staff will scatter out to other airlines, and their management will be in the unemployment line.
