US Airways’ sale of 10 Embraer E-190s cost the airline $49 million in the fourth quarter. Included in the charge was a $42 million write-down in the aircraft’s value, while the remaining $7 million represented non-cash charges associated with loans. This charge, however, is still less than losses the carrier would have made if it had continued operating the aircraft, which have been sold to Republic Airways in a non-cash deal (DAILY, Oct. 15, 2009).
