Good Morning: Pilot Contracts, PBB Publishing Update

It’s Monday and this is our last day in the desert. Tomorrow, it’s back to Dallas.

A couple of things. One, Terry Maxon posted a great summary of the proposed Southwest Airlines’ pilot contract on his Dallas Morning News blog this morning. If you would like to read a copy of the entire summary of the tentative agreement that has been distributed to Southwest pilots, you can access one of those here.

Two, I am still working on this week’s issue of PlaneBusiness Banter today — as a result of my being involved with the Phoenix International Airline Symposium last week. I will post an update here later today when it is ready for subscribers to access.

In the meantime, a quick look at airline stocks this morning was not particularly pleasant, as the sector is down across the board. It would appear that Wall Street is a bit shaken this morning at the hard line the Obama administration has laid out for the U.S. automakers to follow. Airline stocks seem to be caught up in the downdraft.

Have to go finish this week’s issue. More later.
