cesario. There is no quick answer to your question.
Most of the AAirHeads are posting on the Raging Bull a nearly "spam" free site and you could get all your answers there, but a quick rundown.
Airtran/Vjet is the only airline that has endured through the most rigid scrutiny of the FAA, Press, and negative talking heads ever in the airline industry and is still in business. Now that the criminal lawsuit is over (?) Airtrans civil suit against Sabretech can proceed with an excellent chance to get the 100mil+ dollars it lost because of the accident back. Airtran has 100 new planes on order from Boeing at 8-10mil dollars below current cost for the new 717-200. A little math will tell you thats a built in equity of 800mil to 1 bil dollars. Airtran has NO dance partners and is going it alone in Atlanta against Delta and once again making money with their cash back up to 60 mil for the last quarter. Delta is matching fares but only cutting into their own bottom line as AAIR can fly its routes at a profit with the low fares yet Delta must take losses on these routes to compete. Theres a lot more to the story, but, barring an accident I believe Airtran could be 400% higher within a year. IMHO
Invest wisely. Have a great day
