138. Airlines + Boeing (inside traitors)
The cute part is that they are #1, #2, #3, #4 and #5 airline. Is this a cartel as well?

Air France-KLM (Northwest)
Northwest Airlines is a subdivision of Air France-KLM. The Northwest division is an airline headquartered in Eagan, Minnesota, with three major hubs in the United States: Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, Minneapolis- Saint Paul International Airport, and Memphis International Airport. Northwest also operates flights from a hub in Asia at Narita International Airport near Tokyo and also operates transatlantic and Asian flights in cooperation with partner KLM from Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. (1) Air France-KLM is since their merger - after 9/11 - the largest airline in the world in terms of revenue.

Even though their planes did not participate in 9/11 there was massive inside trading on both Northwest and KLM and they themselves have been named as one of the participants. Was Northwest supposed to have a hijacked plane as well?


American Airlines
American Airlines is the largest airline in the world in terms of total passengers transported and fleet size, and the second-largest airline in the world (behind Air France-KLM) in terms of total operating revenues. A subsidiary of the AMR Corporation, the airline is headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, adjacent to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. American operates scheduled flights throughout the United States, as well as flights to Canada, Latin America, the Caribbean, Western Europe, Japan, China, and India. The chairman and CEO of AA is Gerard Arpey. In 2005, the airline netted over 98 million RPMs. (1)

More than 25% of American Airlines is owned by Axa SA, the #2 global insurer (AIG is #3)

Crandall left the company in 1998 and was replaced by Donald J. Carty, who negotiated the purchase of Trans World Airlines and its hub in St. Louis in April 2001. (1)

American Airline was trading at 60x times the usual amount pre-9/11 (2) and was named as one of the 9/11 inside traders. Two American Airlines aircraft were alledgely hijacked and crashed during the September 11, 2001 attacks: Flight 77 (a Boeing 757) and Flight 11 (a Boeing 767)

Flight 77 alledgely crashed into the Pentagon after making an acrobatic turn of 270 degrees at full throttle by an incompetent drug runner.

Flight 11 alledgely crashed into WTC1 and knew exactly what floors to hit as well since Mohammed Atta managed to park the plane right at our prime suspect Marsh.

In the wake of the TWA merger and the roughly concurrent September 11, 2001 attacks (which claimed two of AA's aircraft), American began losing money. Carty negotiated new wage and benefit agreements with the airline's labor unions, but was forced to resign after union leaders discovered that Carty was planning to award handsome executive compensation packages at the same time. St. Louis' hub was also downsized afterwards. (1)


Southwest Airlines
Southwest Airlines, Inc (NYSE: LUV), based in Dallas, Texas, is an airline in the United States. It is the third-largest airline in the world, as measured in number of passengers carried, and the largest with destinations exclusively in the United States and the fourth-largest measured by revenue.

Southwest Airlines was one of the pre-9/11 inside traders. The company was not mentioned in put options.

United Airlines
United Airlines, the primary subsidiary of the UAL Corporation, is a major airline of the United States headquartered in unincorporated Elk Grove Township, Illinois, near Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, the airline's largest traffic hub, with 650 daily departures.

As of December 31, 2005, United is the world's second-largest airline in terms of revenue- passenger-kilometers (behind American Airlines), third-largest in terms of total operating revenues (behind Air France-KLM and American Airlines), and fourth-largest airline in terms of total passengers transported (behind American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Southwest Airlines). United has roughly 54,000 employees and operates approximately 460 aircrafts.

Operation Bojinka
Operation Bojinka, Ramzi Yousef and Khalid Sheik Mohammed's plot against a large number of airliners targeted eight United aircraft flying transpacific routes on January 21, 1995. While this attack was prevented by an apartment fire in Manila, a "descendant" of the project perfected by Sheik Mohammed would cause death on United aircraft six years later.

Before 9/11 United Airlines was the most heavily traded stock inside trading at 285x the norm. United themselves were named as one of the participants by the SEC.

As part of the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attack, two United Airlines planes alledgely were hijacked, a Boeing 767-222 (Flight 175) that crashed into WTC2 in New York City, and a Boeing 757-222 (Flight 93) that alledgely crashed in rural Pennsylvania even though it left a very weird crater and the timing doesn't make sense. The latter was claimed by the Bush administration to have been directed towards either the White House or the United States Capitol building.

In 2001, the company lost $2.14 billion on revenues of $16.14 billion and applied for a $1.5 billion loan guarantee from the federal Air Transportation Stabilization Board established in the wake of the September 11 attacks. When the application was rejected in late 2002, the company was forced to seek debtor- in-possession financing from commercial sources to cover the expected future losses.

Derived from:

US Airways
US Airways is an airline based in Tempe, Arizona, owned by US Airways Group, Inc.. As of May 2006, the combined airline is the fifth largest airline in the United States and has a fleet of 358 mainline jet aircraft and 295 express aircraft connecting 237 destinations in North America, Central America, the Caribbean, Hawaii, and Europe.

US Airways was listed as one of the pre-9/11 inside traders, but the company itself was not subject to excessive put options.

The Boeing Company is the worlds largest aircraft manufacturer. Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, Boeing is the second-largest defense contractor in the world. (1) In 2005, the company was the worlds largest civil aircraft manufacturer in terms of value (with 49% of orders and 45% of deliveries), overtaking Airbus for the first time since 2000. The largest exporter in the United States, Boeings stock is a component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. (2)

Boeing was named as one of the companies involved in 9/11 insider trading. On 9/11 four Boeings were lost, however they were all unscheduled planes.

Boeing had a small office in WTC1, however it is unclear how big it was and probably very small and nothing is known about happened to that office and the people inside.
