    NW having a bigger profit than WN and having the highest profit margin? Sorry, but I really can't see that happening, even if oil were to hover around $55 a barrel (and we all know that it will NEVER remain that lone for an entire year).

      NW's costs are belows Southwest's costs now.

          Do you have a source, because it sounds like you just pulled this out of your @ss.

                Thanks. It will be interesting to watch it play out. These estimates will only be possible if the oil price stays down.

                  Yeah I highly doubt that NW has lower cost than WN. Especially with the mixed fleet that NW has.

                    I doubt it too, seriously. But I haven't been able to find a CASM list for the industry yet...

                      Well, the closest to a CASM-list, if such a thing is even available, would be to look through the airlines' financial results. At least in the case of Delta they always specifically mention their CASM, mainly to show its improvement.
