  Airline Bulletin: Independence Air
Independence Air used to be a vendor, to Delta and United, but it saw the shakeout coming, and decided to be proactive and seek a new business model.
Independence Air is unlikely to restructure into a profitable carrier, and hopefully, for the sake of the industry, Independence Air will fold and the rest of the industry, the sane faction of the industry will thrive in the new world.
Independence Air uses for the most part 50-seat Canadair Regional Jets (CRJs), and the economics of CRJs is pretty lousy, but when fuel is at $67 a barrel, the economics just simply won't allow you to break even.

 Passenger Opinions about Independence Air
I have flown Independence Air about a dozen times in the past few months, mostly their CJR service from IAD to points in the Carolinas.
Presently Independence's fleet comprises CRJs: the overhead bins were too small for my carry-on suitcase to fit, but checking it planeside ended up being a snap.
I got the sense that as a newly independent carrier, they're still working out occasional glitches (for example, the FA on the return trip to IAD said "We at Unit- umm, Independence Air want to thank you..." etc) bit overall I was tremendously impressed.
