James J. Cramer:

I don't like any of the airlines, not now and not ever. Right now, nobody knows who's going bankrupt and who isn't, and the airlines have always been way too speculative for me. With the risk of bankruptcy, $65-plus oil and labor union troubles, there surely are greener pastures out there.
