Note though that they actually had a $22m loss but the $70m they received from DL for the DCA/LGA slot swap agreement pushed them to a profit. So I wouldn't get overly excited about the profit, but considering last year they lost $110m excluding special items in the same period, they should be commended for the great year over year improvement even if they actually lost $22m in the real operation.

Once upon a time, US was the Rodney Dangerfield of the airline industry, "they got no respect". Now "they are doing so well" that they've tried to buy a much larger rival in 3 separate occasions, (UA, DL and now AA), and lately they've been announcing profits, what is this world coming to

Ultimately it's a loss ... 13 cents a share for dividends.


US Airways conference call -

"Choice seats" growing to $100million revenue in 2012, up to $300 million year in the future

Disappointed in attendants rejecting contract - bargaining will resume

Sees synergies in AMR/LCC merger, including ex labor up to more than $1.2 billion and post merger pay comparable to rivals

LCC confident merged company with AMR higher value than AMR alone

LCC focusing on AMR's unsecured creditors

Steps for merger - unions, creditors, then AMR board

April CASM up 9%, may predicted to be slightly less

Mainline costs up 1-3% in 2012 (ex fuel)

It IS a good performance in the traditionally weakest quarter of the year, but you do understand that it's only a profit due to a one time gain due to proceeds from the LGA swaps to DL, right? See Hatbutton's excellent post:

Not to rain on the parade, but pretty much anyone can "try" to buy anything. To date, they have not been successful in these efforts.

Nonetheless, from a financial standpoint they have improved over the years, so that in and of itself is an achievement.

Add a fourth rival: US.

You cannot forget that Parker DID manage to merge with a larger rival.
