Who will make a profit.....a REAL profit, not like those 2nd qtr phony profits. Excluding one time gains & one time charges.

I have no inside info, this is just a guess. Some smaller airlines may have already reported. AMR is usually 1st w/ the big carriers, that should be ina day or so.

NET PROFIT (LOSS) IN MILLIONS

AMR....(18.5)
UAL....(10.7)
Delta Air Lines....15.4
Northwest Airlines....9.5
Continental Airlines....7.2
US Airways Group....(43.7)
Southwest Airlines....48.2
America West Holdings....16.2
Alaska Air Group....6.7
Airtran Holdings....4.0
Jetblue Airways....8.9
ATA Holdings?....(13.5)
Midwest Holdings....(3.7)

I am a little confused by the numbers in your post. In today's Wall Street Journal, Delta is reporting a 3rd quarter loss of $164 million. Excluding one time gains and charges, the loss is $172 million. Kind of a big difference between your profit number of $15.4 million.

DL already reported yesterday and the results were a dismal net loss of $164 million. DL has not done enough to cut costs nor have they done enough to adapt to the new revenue environment.

As for the remaining carriers, I expect JetBlue, Southwest, ATA, Airtran, Frontier, America West, Alaska, Continental and America West to all report a net profit.

American should be right on the bubble. They could post a very small net profit or a small net loss.

Midwest, Northwest, United and USAirways should all post a loss.

Looks like I was wrong!  Insane I'm surprised DL has already reported.

I know you are guessing but you are way off base. ATA is posting no such loss.

Where did you get that number? ATA has said it will be profitable.

So much for guessing Mr 727Lover.

Continental, Northwest show Q3 profits
Is the tide finally turning for the major U.S. airlines. It's probably too soon to say that, but both Continental and Northwest announced third-quarter profits today. Continental showed a net profit for the third quarter of $133 million, compared with a net loss of $37 million a year earlier, Reuters reports. Northwest, meanwhile, reported a net profit of $42 million, compared with a net loss of $46 million a year earlier.

Yeah, I'm afraid these are all gonna be way off base. Southwest's, jetBlue's, and AirTran's will all be significantly higher than you have here.....
