TPG sounds like they are OK with things...I guess that's good for everyone? I wonder why TPG decided not to Pony-Up and match the offer? My guess would be that TPG was wanting to take more of a controllng interest in things , than Dave was willing to allow. This is indeed an interesting turn of events.

The attachment is not an indication that the Judge approved the offer. It is TPG's statement.

What is a state retirement fund doing gambling in the airline industry with their state employees retirement benefits? Sounds suicidle! You all would be better off chartering a bus trip to Vegas and at least have better odds then gambling it away in this industry!Ask any U employee about their 401K or ESOP plan now , what they expect in the future and what they had expected?

Siegel said that RSA's bid could be topped by another party, including TPG. I would not say they are out of the picture, Siegel said of David Bonderman's interest.
