I think I've mentioned the 15 year old boy who bought shares in Expedia.com before they went big, and pracitcally overnight he turned into a millionaire.

All I'm looking at are the 5yr graphs. Every stock...ever, looks like a roller coaster. But as time goes on, most (including nearly every airline) stocks rise with an upward trend. Just like the economy. It's up, it's down, but over time, it'll go up.

How? You can't get NWA or DAL beyond 6 months, UAL beyond 2 years, and USA starts in late 2005. Oddly enough, USAir's stock code is LCC... :lol:

I'm talking about the non-bankrupt airlines here. The ones you can actually analyze and compare accurately over time.
