    • Credit Suisse is prepping for the airlines earnings season.
    • The investment firm recommends holding Southwest Airlines (LUV -0.5%), Delta Air Lines (DAL -0.7%), and United Continental (UAL -0.5%) ahead of their Q3 prints.
    • A neutral stance is taken by CS on American Airlines Group (AAL -0.2%) and Spirit Airlines (SAVE -0.2%).
    • What to watch: Q3 reports are expected to mark a bottom in unit revenue as booking catch up to capacity increases and costs decline. Many of the comparables for companies will become easier heading into Q4. Also of importance, earnings calls should help clear up some visibility on carriers' 2016 plans.
