100% the right move because the LFs were horrible. But Dunkerley to be very conservative when it comes to change and we know he wanted it to work. I am wondering if there is an outside influence calling the shots here. Maybe Hirzel. Or maybe they are trying to pump up the share price to avoid a takeover. Just does not seem like the way Dunk plays it. He typically is more of a long term guy
wow, someone noticed. We are an airline afterall. We are even getting the spammers now. This thing is so underpriced we could go a way here.
cost cutting is not cutting it anymore. A buyout of HA looks like a no brainer. I am guessing Delta, they have had a strong history with Hawaii and do not have many conflicting routes. Also I think they are buying some A330s
It is at the end of 4th of july week so I knew it would be busy. Got all the rest of the tickets wrapped up so I just need the one.
They were priced at $415, which seemed a little high so I waited. Last check it is up to $673 for one way coach.
Not sure about Asia, but west coast fares have taken a big jump this year. I think we are looking at a good year
lets see, in the last 5 years we have had two of the worst hurricanes in 100 years, two of the worst NE storms in 100 years, driest southwest summer in 100 years, the worst east coast winter in100 years. It must be cow farts
The whole industry is underpriced with a few exceptions. Its the classic game of suck everyone in and start raising prices. Flying is the only way travel and is a lot cheaper than driving.
Looking at LAX to HNL prices for spring. last year they were in the 380 range, nor try 580.
we posted a 29 cent loss. That is the skew on earnings. We are at $1.32 if you take out the Q1 2013. If you recall we had a lot of things going on, they took a big hit on the yen, the lost a lot on fuel hedging and they took a write off when they switched credit card companies. All those things are gone now. If we can squeeze out even a little profit we will be looking at PE ratios under 7.
none better than DIS
a major bashing until you remember we were 5 last spring. Fundamentals have not changed, they are underpriced and in position for a great year. we were better by 30 cents last q, if they keep doing that profits will impress
