Just saw the morning news and they are reporting that WELLINGTON MANAGEMENT COMPANY, LLP has pulled out of the company. Their holdings were over 15 million shares of stock.

Thats only 29,000 million $ unfortunately. Airtran should be more worried about those inflated egos across the field that grow faster than a chia pet on crack.

Those buffoons are sitting around their round tables trying to determine how many millions of investor money they want to burn to screw with Airtran.

Actually, the inflated egos I am more worried about are in MCO. Evidently, Wall Street is, too.

Not too worried about DAL. If they managed to get rid of us, the most likely result would be SWA coming to ATL.

The only thing you need to worry about is your ego and loud mouth. Its finally catching up with you.

Anybody know what that airport around Dallas on the Erlin arrival will be used for? Can't SWA just build a new airport with all their cash and cause AirTran and Delta to wish Southwest never came to Atlanta? How much business does AirTran feed to Delta international?

I think it will be quite a while if/when AirTran goes out of business. Years - between 2 and 75.

I also think it will be quite a while (years) before SWA goes to Atlanta for scheduled passenger service whether AirTran goes out of buisness or not.

Just one simple pilot's opinion.

How 'bout you quit running your man-pleaser, and just put the gear down, b!tch?

I am not being the spelling police...but I find it very funny that on a board where most of us are college educated, the one word that apparently kicks us all in the rear is lose vs loose....hahaha

Well, yeah, but it is possible to loose an investor. Think of a moonshiner who looses the dawgs on a revenue agent. No, it's not exactly the Queen's English, but look what happened when all the investors were loosed on the mortgage industry.

I agree. I don't understand why people have such a problem knowing the difference between loose and lose. It is just not on this message board, but I see it everywhere on the internet.
