Here's an idea - why not re-regulate the Air Line industry? They are clearly incapable of running themselves in a responsible manner. Any hoopla about the 'free market' holds no water in this case.

World arlines,should not given any favours,just close down some airlines and sell aircrafts to richer airlines.

$9000 MILLION LOSS is because there is just too many airlines,they need to take out or sell some airlines to bigger airlines.

creative reporting seems to say "We will make $9 billion less than last year" so for example last year profit $109billion, this year $100billion... so a $9billion loss... yeah right.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the ridiculous fuel surcharges.

If they are losing this much and they are still in business, imagine how much they are actually making.

How many airlines will go bankrupt? $9bil loss is petty small, writeoff or pass on to respective govts.
