I just got the March 1, 2004 Aviation Week and Space Technology, and they have a big section on the future of the airlines.

It's the cover story, which is "The Big Six (American, United, Delta, Northwest, Continental, US Airways): Can These Behemoths Be Saved?"

You can read the intro article called "In the Eye of the Storm" here. The printed version includes graphs showing airline market share and debt to investment ratios for all airlines. In addition, in the printed magazine, they have additional articles on the cost cutting steps that each of the Big 6 are using (along with graphs showing their costs per available seat mile over the past 3 years) and an article about labor versus management and contract negotiations.
