No, not really. From time to time, well, nearly daily really, I see “stories” on Google about airlines or the airline industry thrown about buy companies writing analysis about stocks.
The Motley Fool is one, quite frequently, who does this.
A couple of days ago, I saw a report by a website called Zacks promoting news that the shutdown is affecting airlines but also has a statement that Southwest is affected in its ability to get jets delivered and is due to take on new widebodies.
That’s just bad information on a level that should never happen.
Southwest is not buying widebody jets. It is buying ever so slightly larger 737-800 jets of which most of 2013 deliveries are supposed to be.
