US Airways, United Airlines and American Airlines are seen as the major carriers most at risk of a cash crisis, even possible bankruptcy, by early next year. Some analysts predict they will have less cash for their size than US Airways, Delta and Northwest did when they filed for bankruptcy protection in 2004-05.
