How Is National Doing?

Tue Dec 26, 2000 5:50 am

I heard about 2-3 weeks ago that National Airlines had filed for Chapter 11 protection. I was wondering how the airline was currently doing? I thought that they were off to a good start and actually had earned a profit.

I understand from someone who works at National that this is aimed at getting more money from the intial investors, and trying to hold out until fuel costs come back down.

They were doing well, however the spike in fuel prices obviously shaved away any of the already thin margins they had.
