A federal judge today sharply criticized efforts to license Aloha Airlines' brand name to the carrier's nemesis, Mesa Air Group Inc., saying the deal is insensitive to former Aloha workers.


U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Lloyd King postponed until at least Feb. 19 any decision on the sale of Aloha's intellectual property to Aloha's former majority owner Yucaipa Cos.
King said that "Mesa and go! have been given credit for the demise of Aloha" and that licensing the brand name to Mesa would takes the "Aloha name and stand it on its head."
"How about all of the people whose lives have been devastated by this," King asked lawyers for Yucaipa. "Is it just about money?" Aloha shut down for business in March and terminated 1,900 workers, in the state's largest ever mass layoff................................

Sweet, now we can watch Mesa's stock plummet again. It was up to 0.44 there for a day or two...

GOOD.

At last, a judge fully deserving the term "Your Honor".

Justice be served.

IT went up to 0.53 a couple days ago but now it dropped to .42 as of today December 3rd 2008.

But as for me I will soon hopefully see a bright future

I believe Saltchuk just bought the -200 combis. I could be wrong, though.

I have never worked for Mesa.

I apologize for wishing up Mesa to go under - I didn't mean it that way. I don't wish ill fate upon any of my fellow pilots. What I wish is that something can be done to improve the quality of life and wages at MAG by the demise of JO. Maybe someday that'll happen.
