AMR was making money before the labor was cut. In fact the 4th quarter was when they made the severance payouts. That should have made labor a larger cost

After reading the whole story, it seems like nothing has changed at the Lazy A. The place still lost $1.9 billion last quarter, so no improvement there, I wonder how long it will be before they just close the doors at that once proud airline.
To lose that kind of money and be last in the whole industry for on time arrivals is inexcusable.
