    I would guess given the size of AA and the nature of its problems, it will take atleast 2 years to emerge from it

    Well maybe AA will have another first and either be done by 7/2012 or stay in until 2/2015?

    Well, the thread and the linked charts were more concentrated on when AA will emerge, not if, and, besides, I agree with you emergence at some point is very likely. That said, however, I do not think it is correct to say "all the other US-based airlines did." I am thinking of a once flamboyant international carrier, also DFW-based, that I liked to call "Brand F."

    And I would also want to check Eastern, PanAm, and the original Frontier as well. I'm pretty sure those didn't formally emerge, either.

    All the cases listed at the link that you had provided emerged from bankruptcy. I was just under the impression that the now defunct airlines that you mentioned simply went out of business -- belly ...err...fuselage up, so to speak. I did not know that they had declared chapter 11 from which they never emerged...

    Well, with a union hotline like this going around, trust me, it aint'a going to be before 7/2012 !!! http://www.apfa.org/content/category/9/17/626/

    And for that record, I did a control-f search in Internet Explorer -- not one place in the above union post was the word "passenger" (or "customer" or "pax") used. I know, I know, the F/As are threatened and scared, and many of the rest of us might not have bothered to think of the ultimate customer, the one that pays them for safety (and a little service) too. But still, I noticed the absence of these words.
