I donít have the time to look up this ROI, but I imagine itís not very much. An airline the size of FedEx would run through $175m in the blink of an eye.

Investors look at much more than ROI, only a single metric. Many metrics impact investors. How long are they in market, for what purpose? Dividends?, Are they shorting the investment?.... ROI is one of a hundred elements that affect investors plans. Large institutional investors different than small investors, individual investors etc.
Sears was the original Amazon. They just used catalogs. All companies can go out of business. UPS and FedEx have always sought markets outside of Amazon current residential market. Amazon wont own India or China. Impressive gains, but some reality is overlooked in the dreamy Amazon world.
UPS and FedEx could start a website to compete with Amazon, they don't want too, but at some point, they could. They already own the IT and the air/ground infrastructure and world wide access. Not a far stretch. Other corporations are responding to reclaim market loss from amazon. They are ripe for competition themselves. Amazon isn't omnipotent.

I donít disagree. However, the $175M in earnings is not really very much when compared to how much was invested to get that.

Where did you get $175M in earnings?

Either way, Amazon is a threat that you need to keep eyes on

Dont know if If hop the purple train right now.

This same thing happened Q4 of FY15. I'd say tell your friends that these things happen at Purple and the industry at large. Always have, always will.
If they continue to be concerned, maybe Purple isn't for them and they should go to the reliably stable legacy carriers.
