Re: Preliminary approval to St. Louis to explore putting its airport under private management

You are missing the point. It isn't the cost of the borrowing, it's the freedom to actually borrow from the money markets and banks. A State might not have the ability to extend borrowing to cover expansion of the airport facility, whereas by reconstituting it as a private company the shackles of h...

UA pilot's union bashes police/security for the fiasco at ORD. Of course, if law enforcement were not called things could have gone down better. Big solid for the company.

I would have been surprised if there was no provision for a fee for an extended period of time. AS will continue to pay some sort of fee as Branson laid out to keep the Virgin name off another airline or airline startup. You have to look at the payments as insurance/no compete policies. Good business.
