Idk if that's their reasoning. If it is we are all totally F'ed. I firmly believe they do whatever it takes to make the stock price increase. The top 5 execs have hundreds of millions in stock alone. Their number one job is to make shareholders happy.
They could care less about our strategy to deal with NAI, ULCCs, the ME3, or whatever the next threat is in 5,10, or 30 years.
