Default AirTran Profit

AirTran Airways' financial results are benefiting from the discount carrier's low costs and laser focus on domestic routes where it believes it can make money.

Its Orlando, Fla.-based parent company reported Wednesday a $10.4 million profit, or 8 cents a share, even though sales declined more than 11 percent. A year ago it reported a $94.6 million loss.

The July-September results mark AirTran's third quarter in a row of profit as most major U.S. carriers struggle amid weak overall demand for business and international travel.
Revenue fell to $597.4 million from $673.3 million a year ago.

That's great news. Does this mean an industry-leading contract is forthcoming?

Would love to see them setting the bar as high as possible.

Speaking of 'industry leading contracts', I saw this clip today. Pretty funny, but not far from the 'truth' when dealing with ALL air-carrier's "CXO's" these days.

Giv'em heck AirTran!
