|By:, SA News Editor

Cowen sees banner earnings reports for select airliners when key companies start releasing Q2 numbers next week.

American Airlines (AAL +1.5%), Southwest Airlines (LUV +1.3%), and Alaska Air (ALK +0.2%) are all tapped by the investment firm to beat estimates.

The trio has a focus in the U.S. where the industry saw passenger revenue per available seat mile improve nicely during the quarter.
