Last Thursday I said that United would file by bankrupty by the following Thursday. It took only until Monday. I flew the airline this morning, and the pilot sought to reassure passengers that the crew would not be distracted.

Now begins the flurry of activity — also known as business as usual — to restructure the airlines.
