TWA Survival in Doubt

ST. LOUIS, Missouri (x) -- Trans World Airlines Inc. is telling investors that its auditors have "substantial doubt'' about the carrier's ability to survive.


Tuesday's disclosure is another sign of the St. Louis-based airline's financial woes. In recent years, it has been to bankruptcy court twice. Just last week, TWA announced a loss of $284.6 million for 1996.


KPMG Peat Marwick, the accounting firm, expressed concern about TWA's future in its portion of the company's annual report to securities regulators.
