Exactly! Delta needs to tout schedule and frequency. How about pointing out that AirTran's first out-bound flight from ATL to many Northeast business destinations (BOS, LGA, EWR, PHL, IAD, PIT)...

The most interesting part of the Q2 call was when Buttrick (I believe) asked why UA was having trouble refinancing their $900M dedt due later this year. Was it a problem that the interest rates being...

After having experienced hell on that bus-ride, my advice for you would be to go to SFO. Forget about the bus. The bus ride is contracted out to a local operator who couldn't care less about the...

As long as you stay out of the border states with Pakistan (Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab, and of course, Kashmir), you should be fine.

I'd rate Air India (the international carrier) good at safety and well below average when it comes to service. If things go routinely, the service experience will be average. If anything goes...

It'd be interesting, except that AA has a hub at both ends of the ORD-DFW route, and that'd be tough to compete against for UA. SEA-ORD doesn't hurt Alaska because they don't fly it. It's a...

In the long-term, they might get down to 4 types.. 744, 777, 767/757, and the A318/319/320/321. These lines fill in most of the range/traffic possibilities.
