The Somewhat Friendlier Skies


Quote:
THE AIRLINE BUSINESS has seen happier times, no doubt about it. Since Sept. 10, the day before the terrorist attacks, the Dow Jones Airline Index has fallen 33%, with UAL (NYSE:UAL - news), parent of United, and Continental (NYSE:CAL - news) sliding 40% and 61%, respectively.

On Monday, however, things started looking a little brighter. Despite the formidable challenges that remain in the wake of the attacks including a dramatic slowdown in traffic and higher costs associated with tighter security investors started to nibble on stocks in the troubled sector. United, for example, added nearly 5.5%, while Continental jumped nearly 6%, and Delta Air Lines (NYSEAL - news) climbed almost 7%. The fact that President Bush on Monday signed the Air Transportation Safety and Stabilization Act which promises $5 billion in cash and the potential for up to $10 billion in government-guaranteed loans certainly didn't hurt.

Airline Bailout Could Be Boon for U.S. If Government Takes Stakes in Carriers


Quote:
WASHINGTON -- If the airlines survive the current turbulent times, one institutional investor could gain big: Uncle Sam.

Under the bailout legislation rushed through Congress after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the federal government will be able to take an equity stake in any airline that seeks credit assistance. The bailout law provided $5 billion in direct subsidies to offset industry losses arising from the federally mandated shutdown of the nation's airways, and $10 billion more in loan guarantees to help companies manage the rough months ahead.
