"Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the captain speaking. Firstly, I'd like to thank you for choosing to fly Mandarin Airlines. As we taxi out to the runway please make yourself comfortable...and for those of you sitting on the right side of the plane...please look to your left."
United may file for bankruptcy. As of 12/5/2002 the company is "hemorrhaging" 8 million a day! For FY2001 the company lost an airline industry record 2 billion dollars. There is virually a 100% chance the company will file for chapter 11 bankruptcy leaving the company basically intack.
