AQ Files for Ch11 Again...Effects on UA?

The Ch11 is being discussed in the HI airlines forum here:
http://flyertalk.com/forum/showthrea...82#post9441582

Just in from the Honolulu advertiser here:
http://honoluluadvertiser.com/apps/p...ING03/80320067

Given UA having some ownership in the company and the codeshare/inter-island relationship, what do you think will happen? This is probably not a great time to be a bankrupt airline, with credit tough and inter-island competition fierce. Will UA pull out? Or take this as an opportunity to even further beef up its stake and its role?

Well if they shut down service altogether I'd say there'd be a problem.

I doubt UA will pour more money into AQ though...they have a presence in hawaii so its not like they depend on AQ.

Would this be considered cross posting though since its already over in the HI Airlines forum?

Not as long as this thread stays specific to the effects on UA of the filing...let's just say I'm glad I decided to go to LHR in May instead of flying AQ to OGG...though I am sad I am going to miss the DO fun in HNL on the 16-17th

It appears that AQ wants to be bought by someone...or so goes the reports today down here in Hawaii
