Northwest posts $2.15 billion profit but suffers from 'pilot absenteeism'
One-time noncash gains related to its emergence from bankruptcy in May propelled Northwest Airlines to a net profit of $2.15 billion for the second quarter ended June 30, significantly reversed from a net loss of $285 million in the year-ago period when it was operating under Chapter 11 protection.
Excluding reorganization items, NWA reported a pre-tax profit for the period of $273 million, up 52.5% compared to earnings of $179 million on a similar basis in the year-ago period.
