Magazine on Frequent Flyer Mileage: Among the big six traditional
carriers, American, Continental and Northwest are fairly healthy.
Delta and United are in trouble but are not in imminent danger of
shutting down. United filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2002
and Delta may soon but that does not affect frequent-flier programs. US
Airways is the worse shape. Already in Chapter 11 for the second time, a
relatively high probability of going out of business.
