    Will any US Airlines fly Overseas?

    If and when the US legacy carriers go broke, who will fly us overseas? Seriously--will Airtran, Spirit, or Southwest start international flights or will we have to take non-US carriers?

    I would hate to see US Airways (I liked Piedmont) go under, but I was queasy when they took themselves out of bankruptcy so soon. I really can't see them coming out of a second filing. . there is just too much capacity, particularly in the northeast.

    As a Florida resident, I saw the IAM ignore economic realities and destroy Eastern. . .suspect they will do the same here.

    Best to all, long, short or elsewhere.

    • Starting in Spring 2005, ATA Airlines plans to start flying overseas. They are supposed to be flying to five destinations in Europe. I guess it is a start. They will be the first LCC to fly overseas. Starting late this month all of there aircraft will have business class. It is nice to see a LCC starting to put a little class into there planes also with a low ticket price. It is also rumored that ATA is looking into Charlotte for a third hub. I looks like Southwest has a partner when it comes to teaming up on UAIR. I hope the best for all Airlines. The sad truth is, by this time next year, there will be one-two less players. I understand what all of the employee groups are going through. It is hard to give back and then have to give even more back. The only thing you can do as an employee is to fight for what you are worth. If you don't fight, you will be taken advantage of. Good luck to all.

        It won't be a low price for long. Otherwise, it is like serving McDonalds on china. Just doesn't fly, so to speak.

      • Redrum:

        Thanks for your intelligent response. I know that Spirit allows for a first-class upgrade (I've done it several times), as does AAI.

        ATA flying overseas. .interesting.

    • Drive, or take the train/bus/whatever.

      Don't pose such stupid stuff here. You are too stupid for consideration on this board.

      Munhoi is God.
