In the USA, I would say that B6 is perhaps in the best shape on this as almost all of their Airbus fleet is owned, with a significant portion paid off. That said, Delta probably has a lot of exposure outside of the USA, especially in Brazil, Mexico and the UK, more so than any other US carrier.
As for Brazil, discounting Avianca Brasil which is all but dead, I can't see any other carrier collapsing. In Mexico though, one needs to watch out for Interjet, which is trying to be a hybrid between Aeromexico and Volaris. The decision to buy the Sukhoi Superjet was disastrous for them.

No competitive advantage, a strong reliance on business travel in key hubs, and over one hundred brand new jets on credit. Where have I heard that before?

I'd be surprised if they'll still be around in their current form within the next three years; in fact, it's not implausible that Alitalita will actually outlive Air Italy.
