Greetings earthlings!

This week’s mega-earnings issue of PlaneBusiness Banter is now posted. This week we take an in-depth look at the recent earnings results from Hawaiian Holdings, Allegiant Travel Company, JetBlue, and Alaska Air Group.

We also take a look at the latest capacity analysis by analyst Dan McKenzie with Buckingham Research; we take a look at the latest news concerning Boeing’s little problem with the 787; we look at Imperial Capital analyst Bob McAdoo’s latest comments on United Airlines; we have a couple of reader letters we found interesting this week; and finally, yes, without further ado, we talk about the American/US Airways merger.

You’ve all read the headlines. You’ve all heard the escalating chatter this week. Yes, it does appear that we will hear the details of a proposed merger between US Airways and American Airlines next week. Tuesday or Wednesday to be exact.

It’s about to get really busy around here.
