Airline earnings news, Spirit to PHL

That time of the year again, with airlines reporting second-quarter earnings. Southwest was among the first, revealing a good quarter despite high fuel costs. Not a big surprise given how much airlines have trimmed their available seats and raised ticket prices this year.

Yesterday, American's parent AMR reported its first second-quarter operating profit since 2007 but still lost money on a net basis as it struggles through Chapter 11 reorganization. More on that here... 

And here for the archives is yesterday's story about Spirit Airlines anticipated launch of service next year from PHL. No additional comment ... let the airline's record speak for itself.
