Huge debt load. Traffic is going to be down. They've cut some routes and plane sizes. Has a target over $28 and they have traded above that level 8 out of the last 10 years. Excellent comeback potential.

Has a target price of $10.24 which has to be re-examined. Expects another bad quarter, so wait. Should have a good chance of a turn around.

Big debt load of $50 million. (Down from $1.1 billion) A lot of the debt comes due this year so they'll have to deal with it. Good potential in their Home Outfitters, but expansion costs money. Likes the dividend.
