Pulling the Ripcord on United

Delta announces that revenues grew by only 2% in the last quarter, so of course, they trash United Continental Group (UAL), taking it down 11% from the recent high.  As a former pilot myself, I always allow an extra safety margin separating me from a catastrophic event.
