Northwest Airlines will keep its four-engine Avro jets in the Mesaba Airlines fleet, a decision that means the smaller, regional carrier will not lose 40 percent of its revenue.

Mesaba is expected to formally announce Northwest's decision on the Avro next week. On Friday, the Mesaba branch of the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA) reported that a five-year contract agreement has been ratified by 66 percent of the pilots who cast ballots.

66 percent does not seem like much, but majority rules.

Wouldn't they all cast votes on something this important ??

I believe in the ALPA voting system, casting a vote is a "yes", and not voting is a "no." That's how it was when we were trying to vote in ALPA at Chi Ex.
