Obviously doing OK. Just bought back 100 mil of their own stock. (Still lots of cash in the bank..almost 1 bil = a lot for a little airline) Expecting record revenue for 3rd qtr (my opinion). Ordering new jets, new trips to Hawaii in Oct and out of ANC in Dec. Tough competition ahead with Virgin etc.

Negotiations..some progress, slow going as predicted. Company seems interested in getting it done ...eventually. Pilots will not accept any concessions in this next contract. There will be a step forward.
