NW Narrows 4Q Loss

In reading this, I wonder if this in any way gives NW the upper-hand in negotiating a merger since it seems as though they didn't perform as poorly as many of the other carriers did in the 4Q...thoughts?

What was happening with Pinnacle Airlines Q4? It seems like the airline would have broken even, if not squeaked a little profit out with out them.

I thought this tidbit was interesting: Northwest ended the quarter with $3.0 billion in unrestricted cash and $725 million in restricted cash...

Here's what was included RE: RASM in the release on Yahoo...

Northwest made more money per passenger on fuller planes, even as it reduced capacity by 1.5 percent. Its revenue per available seat mile -- the amount it collected from each passenger it flew one mile -- rose 4.8 percent to 11.32 cents.
