From the sounds of it, they also reduced most of their future hedges and took the charges this quarter, and still had a $190 million profit after those items.

Returned $1+ to shareholders, $355 million given to profit sharing, reduced debt by $261 million.

Really starting to show their true earnings potential once again...all while finishing up a merger and expanding rather quickly. Now if they can just settle with their unions and fix their on-time and baggage issues, they'll really be a force.

There's work to be done on all three fronts, but on-time and baggage have improved tremendously in the past year or so.

So does this mean we can put the call for bag fees on hold?
Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

I wonder if the expiration of the Wright Amendment had anything to do with WN's large 4Q... Big grin
