Default Cash flow positive…

Do you understand what it means? How about EBITDA positive?

Here is an explanation:Anyone paying attention to the airlines’ second quarter reports over the next couple of weeks also likely will encounter some talk about carriers “positive EBITDA” or “EBITDAR” results from June, or perhaps even from the full second quarter. Those, of course, are accounting terms (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (and Rents), typically emphasized by companies that are trying to distract folks’ attention away from the size of their reported net or operating losses.
And you can bet that most or all U.S. carriers also will mention how they turned “cash flow positive” sometime during the second quarter (or even earlier). That, obviously, just means that they began taking in more revenue from customers than they spent directly on operations during the same period, even though those revenues still weren’t enough to cover such things as the monthly interest payments on their debt, their taxes and other non-operating costs.
