      This calls for a multi-billion dollar government bailout, so that they can go back to overcharging customers and never turning a profit.


      The commercial airline industry is so fucked.

              I think there's a minimum net worth guideline, so I'm screwed if something bad happens to me.

                I didn't read the article but I'm sure that they are filing to get out from under their union contracts and pension plans. Those are what are killing the non-discount airlines. They'll keep flying.

                  Absolutely. This is one of the industries that routinely can't manage its own finances and is continually bailed out by an even larger group that's an even bigger financial cluster. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mad.gif[/img]

                  Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

                          How so, they will lose their pensions. Delta will get the Gubmint to take over the pensions which means workers will get a fraction of what they were promised.
