Compared to some other mainline carriers, business is booming at
American Airlines. The carrier managed to avoid the bankruptcies
that plagued its competitors the past several years... ticket
prices are up... and its planes are full. Oh, and the airline has
also managed to post a profit for the past two quarters.
A major European aerospace company saw a lot of red in the third
quarter of this year. The European Aeronautic Defense and Space
company, or EADS, reported Wednesday it lost hundreds of millions
in the third quarter, due to problems at its Airbus subsidiary.
