Assuming that there are only 2 airline companies in the world, Delta and US Airways, what is the ((Nash) Equilibrium) or price that each company in the following matrix will charge? At that price, what profits do each company get?

$17000

               $17000

$14000

                   $20000

$10000

                  $23000

$400

$19000

               $14000

$16000

                   $16000

$13000
