Continental Air Posts Profit

Quote:
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Continental Airlines Inc. (NYSE:CAL - news), the No. 5 U.S. air carrier, on Wednesday posted a third-quarter profit, saved by $243 million in federal grants aimed at helping the troubled airline industry stave off the sharp travel decline after the Sept. 11 attacks.

Houston-based Continental reported an operating loss of $97 million, or $1.76 per share, compared with a profit of $135 million, or $2.21 per share a year earlier. Including $243 million in cash payments from a federal bailout program, Continental earned $3 million, or 5 cents per share.

It's gratifying to know that I, in some very small way, helped. There's never been a more rewarding time to be a revenue passenger.
