The consensus is that DL's earnings with be about equal to UA's and AA's combined and close to twice each. As I just said earnings are based on margin or EPS. DL is not 2x UA in either. Earnings are not based on margin. Margin is based on earnings. These are the present analysts' estimates for Q2 e...
