NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Years ago I remember years making a vow to myself that I would never buy an airline stock. If it wasn't rising fuel prices it was the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. If it wasn't 9/11, it was some problem with the fuselages. It never ends.History will point to more bankruptcies in this industry than any other sector of our economy. If it is not a pilot strike, it's a mechanics strike and on, and on and on.
