About

Capitalizing on Opportunities in the Distressed Airline Industry

While the resilient airline industry continues to battle exorbitant fuel prices, complex pension issues and industry over-capacity, it remains one of the most distressed industries worldwide. United is still operating in Chapter 11, US Airways is in Chapter 11 again, ATA went into Chapter 11 last December, and there is speculation as to whether Delta will soon be filing. Do you have the information you need to protect your investments and advise your clients?

Given the continued turmoil in the airline industry, counsel, investment and commercial bankers, investors, lessors, and consultants must have an up to the minute, in-depth grasp of how the most recent changes and developments will impact financial deals.

In this publication, leading attorneys, analysts, financiers and airline executives from key firms including Bristol Associates, Caylon Securities, Citigroup, GATX Financial, International Lease Finance Corporation, J.P. Morgan Securities, Simat Helliesen & Eichner, Standard & Poor's, and The Seabury Group provide insiders' advice on:*

    ( New strategies by legacy carriers to compete with the low-cost carriers
    ( Where lobbying efforts for pension reform are going - and how they will impact airlines' financial health
    ( Impact of the recent UAL appellate court case on 1110
    ( Meeting the expectations of investors and creditors in restructurings
    ( How to put your money to work in the distressed airline market
