    ________$10________

    Republic will sweeten their bid, any incremental increase the size of their offer only increases the corresponding recovery level of their unsecured Frontier claims (which are substantial). And don't blather about DIP financing, there are substantial pre-bankruptcy liabilities due Republic. LUV must PAY, if they want Frontier. The auction process will begin August 11th. I predict LUV will back away.

    • I never get these things right for the right reason, but...

      LUV is making money and has cash on hand, RJET does not have that much money and is not making money and credit is still tight.

      Can LUV leverage their fuel cost for the Frontier routes? I bet RJET does not do that more loses.

      LUV left Denver years ago when Stapleton was closed. Today LUV plan allows for flying into congested markets like Logan, Laguardia and now even sneaking in around United into Denver.

      Looks to me like all three airlines (LUV, RJET and Frontier) would benefit from LUV taking over.

      This a really good oppurtunity for LUV to grow like they did in 1991 when they bought a bankrupt airline and took over many new gates at Midway in Chicago.

      You'll get your DIP money back, and some fraction of your unsecured debtor money back, and that'll be it IMO. I predict SWA will prevail, barring any labor tie-ups.

    • DIP financing takes precedence over any and all pre-bankruptcy obligations.
