The Numbers Don't Fly At Usair

USAir said that "sluggish economic conditions" in April and May led the airline to revise earlier forecasts of a second-quarter profit and instead to predict a loss. The airline's chairman, Seth E. Schofield, also said that he did not expect the carrier to earn money in 1993. In a June 21 article, BUSINESS WEEK erred in saying that Schofield expected the airline to be profitable this year. Current forecasts are "subject to change," based on economic, market, and political factors, the company says.
