I kind of utilized the energy that the major

never go bankrupt. You won't see JetBlue
go bankrupt, or Southwest. The American
airline industry, unlike almost any other
American industry, has never taken quality

Airlines never really go bust. They screw
their creditors. They screw their shareholders.
You don't get rid of the dead wood. The

you are in preproduction,
it's four months of phenomenally hard toil.
You do 19-hour days and you don't sleep
and you panic. And it's an awful lot of
pressure when you are trusted
with an awful lot of money
by people that you really like and respect.
And so if they give you a really huge amount
