    ATA Airlines discontinues all operations

    Better rethink your travel plans if you're booked with ATA:

    [size=13pt]ATA AIRLINES DISCONTINUES ALL OPERATIONS[/size]

    After filing for Chapter 11 on April 2, 2008 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Indianapolis, IN, ATA Airlines has discontinued all operations and cancelled all current and future flights. Following the loss of a key contract for our military charter business, it became impossible for ATA to continue operations. Unfortunately, we were not in a position to provide our customers or others with advance notice.

    I saw that this morning. We have a flight booked in the semi-near future with US airways. At first, I thought I remember that they were tied to ATA, but they're tied to AWA. *sigh of relief*

    Aloha Airlines bellied up on Monday.
    We don't use ATA at work, but we used Aloha all the time.

    I thought I was screwed at first.

    I have two flights (one on Tues) through Air Tran Airways = ATA.
    LOL!



    Air Tran is not the same
    ATA!
    Thank gawd!

    Is it time to have a publicly owned airline yet?
