The airline reported fourth quarter net income of $514 million, down about 21 percent compared to the same period in 2018. For the full-year, net income was $2.3 billion, off about 6 percent, year-over-year. That certainly could be viewed as an impressive performance for a carrier that by now should have at least 75 Max jets, which were to account for about 10 percent of its fleet. But it was a less lucrative year and quarter than it could have been, Southwest CEO Gary Kelly told analysts on the airline’s fourth quarter earnings call on Thursday, when he referred to the Max situation as a “a crisis-like challenge.”Brian Sumers (Skift)
