I know that AS only flies to SEA, PDX, and ANC from PHX. My point was that I refused to pay HP's higher fares and chose a competitor (in this case, AS).

Yes, I have been very vocal here about AS's POOR on-time performance. However, my luck has been equally bad on WN and HP (actually Mesa which doesn't count toward HP's performance).

Good for AWA!

I think it's great that AWA can hit their goals at a higher rate, I've been whining about fares being too low for years. I was an exclusive (whenever there was a choice) UA customer for 15+ years, but I bailed on them a few years back.

I prefer HP's service and can justify the difference based on schedule and on time performance.

Here's one customer that hopes to see fares rise some this year. Let's chase the bad guys into liquidation and have fares float to a free market system that isn't screwed up by bankruptcy cover and government intervention.

KevAZ --

I'm right there with you. If they can tighten bankruptcy rules for individuals, then they need to tighten bankruptcy rules for companies. There should be a strict limitation on the time companies can operate under bankruptcy protection. I am thinking a maximum of one year before they must find financing or cease operations.
