"In 2009, NetJets' revenues declined $550 million (43%) for the second quarter and $1,024 million (42%) for the first six months as compared to 2008. The declines reflected an 81% decline in aircraft sales as well as a 22% decline in flight operations revenues primarily due to lower flight revenue hours. NetJets produced pre-tax losses in 2009 of $253 million for the second quarter and $349 million for the first six months. The pre-tax losses included asset writedowns and other downsizing costs of $192 million for the second quarter and $255 million for the first six months. NetJets owns more planes than is required for its present level of operations and further downsizing will be required unless demand rebounds."
